Potatoes – 2
Sweet Onions -1
Tomatoes- 2
Cilantro -1/2 cup
Lime Juice – 2 tbsp fresh

Dry Ingredients:Chaat Masala – 1 tbsp

Roasted Cumin seeds – 1 tsp (powdered)
Sugar – 1 tsp
Salt as per taste

  • Thaw frozen corn kernels in microwave for 2 minutes.
  • In a covered sauce pan, cook the fresh or thawed corn kernels for 5 minutes. Cool it down.
  • Boil the potatoes, peel and cut into small pieces. Chop sweet onions and tomatoes finely. Clean and chop cilantro finely as well.
