‘Chaat’ is an Indian term for food that is tantalizing to the taste buds. It incorporates a mix of flavors – spicy, sweet, tangy, as well as a mix of textures! Chaat is synonymous with street food in India however ‘chaat’ food is something you can try to recreate and make at home, too!

Since AIP avoids nightshades, one might think that it would be challenging to create chaat without the heat, right? However, just using some spices like ground ginger, dried mango powder (Amchur powder) and black salt can get your taste buds on a wild and enjoyable ride!

Fruit chaat is a very common and popular street food in India year-round, with the fruits changing according to season. Sweet and tart fruits lend best to a fruit chaat as they help in balancing the different flavor elements! I make fruit chaat using different combinations of fruits. This apple and kiwi chaat is one of my favorite snacks as it’s a perfect balancing of the sweet with the tangy! This fruit chaat is also great as an appetizer to be served just before a meal!

About Indira Pulliadath

Indira Pulliadath is a nutritional therapy practitioner (NTP) and an AIP Certified Coach. Before working as a Nutritionist, she worked as a researcher in the healthcare industry for 15 years in the field of pharmacoeconomics. She started exploring healing diets five years ago when she was first diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. The disease pretty much crippled her, progressing very rapidly to all her joints. Over a period of two years, she tried several diets and alternative therapies, which did not help her much. Finally it was the AIP diet that helped to reduce her pain and inflammation greatly. Once she began to get better, she decided to switch careers and become a nutritional therapist so she could help other people. When she is not doing health coaching or researching, she is experimenting in her kitchen! She loves to develop Paleo and AIP versions of her family’s favorite recipes. You can find her recipes on her blog 'Cook2Nourish’ and on her Youtube channel. She is also active on Instagram and Facebook. Indira lives in Connecticut with her husband and two teenage children. As a family they enjoy hiking in the beautiful trails in and around Connecticut.
