Chukauni Chow Mein (Noodles with Yogurt Potato Salad and Black Chickpeas) Recipe!!

Day before yesterday, my cousin sister had sent me a picture of Chukauni Chow Mein and after seeing that I could not resist myself from making it. This dish basically is mixture of Chukauni (Yogurt Potato Salad) and blanched spaghetti. This used to be one of the most popular dishes in our school canteen. As I was making this recipe, I had so many flashbacks and at the same time was able recreate something that I had eaten almost ten years ago :) To give it a small twist I added black chickpeas and tomato-scallion salad. Enjoy the step by step process below:
