ALOO CHANA CHAAT (POTATO AND CHICK PEAS SALAD)

Ever since I started using tinned chick peas, making anything with them as a main ingredient seems so easy. I always have a couple of tins handy at home, especially because my kids love Chole! Today for a change I though will make something healthier with chick peas, so here is a nutritious and filling Aloo Chana Chaat.

This is what you’ll need

Chick peas: 1 tin (drained, 250 gms)

Onion: 1 (chopped)

Tomato: 1 (chopped)

Potato: 1 (boiled and cubed)

Green chillies: 2 (chopped)

Ginger: 1/4tsp (chopped)

Roasted jeera (cumin) powder: 1/2tsp

Chaat masala: 1tsp

Chilli powder: 1tsp

Lemon: 1/2

Coriander leaves: 2tsp (chopped)

Salt to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. If tinned chick peas are not available, soak a cup of chick peas over night and pressure cook them (for 2 whistles) the next day. Cool and they are ready to use.

2. Mix all the ingredients listed and serve immediately.

3. Can be eaten cold or as soon as it is prepared.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: 3-4
