Channa N Veggies Salad

Channa (Chickpeas) provide an excellent source of molybdenum. They are a very good source of folic acid, fiber, and manganese. They are also a good source of protein, as well as minerals such as iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. As a good source of fiber, garbanzo beans can help lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar levels. This makes them a great food especially for diabetics and insulin-resistant individuals. When served with high quality grains, garbanzo beans are an extremely-low-fat, complete protein food. They have a delicious nutlike taste and buttery texture. They provide a good source of protein that can be enjoyed year-round and are available either dried or canned. Channa salad , one of my fav salad with fresh veggies tossed with olive oil, salt n pepper powder...

1/2cup Channa ( soaked n cooked)
1/4cup Cucumber pieces
Few tomato pieces
1/4cup Grated carrot
1tsp Chopped coriander leaves
Pepper powder
Olive Oil

Mix the salt, pepper powder n oil together...add the channa n also the fresh vegetables together n toss with salt, pepper n Olive oil...serve them as salad...tinned channa also suits prefectly for this salad, but i like to use the dry chick peas..

Prefect Salad for any season!!!

Yummy and easy.If canned chana is used,then this salad will be super quick.I too stick to dry chana though.
