    Dimpi's Note:

    This is a delightfully sweet and tangy snack or side dish made with chickpeas and potatoes. Tamarind paste is readily available in Indian grocery stores. Update based on a review - Shallots can be substituted with mild onions and is meant to be raw. This imparts a special crunchy flavor that is excellent in all Indian chaat and some Indian salads. Also remember that tamarind is a distinctive taste and if you're new to it, start with less and go by taste. Experiment and enjoy!

      Thankyou for posting this delicious recipe. I sprinkled some chaat masala and roasted, ground cumin seeds on top along with some sliced jalapeno. I loved the sweet and sour and salty combination that instantly tickle the taste buds. Thanks again!

      I used minced red onion as I did not have a shallot. Love the tamarind! I use the dark kind in the plastic jar.

      I tried this recipe last week and was part way through before I realised that the shallots weren't supposed to be cooked. I thought that was unusual, so I sauteed them a little bit first. The tamarind paste I had was the dark variety that looks like molasses and comes in a plastic container, so the dish did not look pretty and the tamarind totally masked the delicate flavour of the shallots. I think it would be better made with the other, purple variety of tamarind that comes in a glass jar. Overall the dish was nice and tangy, and was quick to make.
