Hash Brown Chaat
Sweet, spiced apple butter chutney and an herbaceous green chutney, crunchy toppings, and plenty of spices and herbs make this potato-based snack, which blogger and cookbook author Hetal Vasavada serves at her Diwali celebration, a riot of texture and flavors that is so essential to chaat (a category of Indian cuisine that roughly means “snacks”). Don’t skip out on the black salt, which adds distinct funkiness to the dish. Save leftover green chutney to top scrambled eggs, tacos, or grilled chicken.
Apple butter chutney can be made up to 3 days ahead. Green chutney can be made up to 1 day ahead. Ungarnished hash browns can be kept warm in a 200°F oven up to 20 minutes.
Find black salt, chickpea flour, and sev at your local Indian grocery store.
