Schewan alu is a spicy, tangy and delicious chat pata snack, which can be prepared in  just few minutes. Here is the recipe of my Chat pata Schezwan Alu / Schezwan Potatoes / Chinese Potatoes.


3 -4 potatoes boiled 
2-3 tbsp schezwan sauce ( preferably home made )

1 tbsp vinegar 
3-4 cloves of finely chopped garlic 
2-3 tbsp tomato sauce 
salt if needed 


  1. Boil potatoes , drain for sometime and peel . Chop into small or medium pieces , keep aside .
  2. In a pan , drizzle some oil , add garlic and fry for a minute but make sure it doesn't turn the color.
  3. Add schezwan sauce, soya sauce, vinegar and tomato sauce ( ketch up ) , mix everything well. 
  4. Add chopped potatoes and mix well . Adjust the seasonings and sauces like if you feel that it's too spicy then add 1 -2 tbsp tomato ketchup and little soya sauce )
  5. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot .


  • If you think its too spicy then add more tomato sauce.
  • Its best when made with home made schezwan sauce.
  • You can add red, yellow and green bell peppers too. 
  • You can even add spring onion bulbs at the time you add garlic and then garnish with spring onions stem ( chopped ) instead of garnishing with coriander leaves.
  • If you are adding thickly chopped red, yellow, green capsicums, make sure you add peppers after you fry the garlic.
