Can Indian street food be made healthier? This recipe is a twist on Kabuli Aloo Tikki Chaat, or chickpea potato spiced patties infused with the quintessential Indian spices of garlic, ginger, onion, green chillies, and cumin. It uses Angie's Chickpea Tempeh instead of regular chickpeas for an easier load on the digestive system. A refreshing coriander and mint chutney to go along, it is a full-flavoured appetizer for parties (or since we are practicing social distancing due to Coronavirus outbreak), can be made ahead, stored in the freezer, and heated for a quick lunch.
