What is kachalu chaat?

Kachalu chaat is made by boiling kachalu (colocasia root), after that different spices, ginger, chillies and chutney are added to it.

You can keep it in the refrigerator and serve it when required. It does not spoil but I suggest you have it in 1-2 days maximum.

Add few pieces of kachulu chaat on top of dahi bhalla (dahi vada), raj kachori and papdi chaat. It will increase its taste of it.

You can have it with roti, parathas and poori.

Try it with nachos and chips, you will love the taste of it.
