Chana Salad

Chana Salad

Garbanzo beans/chhole chana/Chick peas(like most legumes) have long been valued for their fiber content. Two cups provide the entire Daily Value! I decided to frame Chana salad and put it on my wall as an inspiration to eat more salads after Diwali. I had Diwali snacks, sweets, dinners and desserts over and over again for the past couple of weeks. So much so, that my innards are begging for a break?. So made Chana Salad in lunch.

The beauty of this basic recipe of Chana Salad is that it can be prepared in numerous ways.




Boiled Chick pea and red chana – 2 cup

Chopped Cucumber – 1/2 cup

Chopped medium size Tomato – 3

Chopped different colored bell peppers – 1/2 cup

2. Add salt, lemon and chat masala.
