Yes, today we are in Madhya Pradesh to Explore the Flavours of Street Food. With the alphabet G I have Garadu Chat . Garadu is a type of yam. I had never seen or heard about it . It was my dil who got it from Indore and made it . This is a famous chat from Indore and is available only in winters .

 

 The yam needs to be peeled and boiled first and then chopped into bite sized pieces . It is then fried till crisp . Garadu masala , a special spice and lemon  are drizzled over this and we are ready for a tongue tickling hot and spicy chat .

 

We have a special spice Garadu Masala which is used to give it that zing . The masala is like chaat masala and after adding this masala one doesn’t need any other spice except salt. We got the masala from Indore but there are a couple of online recipes for this masala and one can definitely give it a try .

 

For those who can’t  lay hands on this particular yam , can definitely give it a try with a different variety of yam , I am sure it will taste equally delicious .
