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.
