Chole Chaat/Channa Chaat

Channa/Kabuli channa/Chole/Cholay or Chickpeas, this legume is quite known for their high content in Protein and not to forget they are also rich in fiber, calcium, these legumes are definitely suitable to everyone especially for the diabetic peoples. Coming to today's Channa chaat, its quite a healthy meal and anyone can enjoy it during anytime of the day. You can make this lipsmacking channa chaat quickly and easily. This chaat can be simply made with kabuli channa aka white chickpeas or else with kala channa aka black chickpeas. Obviously my today's recipe goes for white chickpeas which is my most favourite.

I searched for a prefect channa chaat through google, but finally i ended up with my own version. Yes my version of channa chaat goes for a saucy kind of chaat,and my family just enjoyed it thoroughly. We completely skipped out the lunch and enjoyed this protein rich chaat for our aftenoon meal.If you are an ardent fan of chaat foods, dont forget to make this chaat for your breakfast. Trust me if you have this chaat, am sure you will definitely have a filling and satisfying meal.

This chaat is a tremendous guilt free, gluten free meal, absolutely vegan as well. Needless to say anyone can have this dish. Simply make a chickpeas semi gravy and top it with green chutney, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions and sev, thats it. How simple, easy na..

By the way, to make the chickpeas semi gravy you just need some mildly over cooked chickpeas, ginger garlic paste, chilly powder, coriander powder and garam masala. If you dont feel like making this semi gravy style chickpeas, just go with the cooked chickpeas. Even with the usual cooked chickpeas,you can make excellent chana chaat. However trust me if you make this chaat, am sure you wont hesitate a second to make this channa chaat often at home.This post is my last post of this month which going to be a part of this month's long blogging marathon as am running with Blogger's choice as theme.

Even I make it for lunch when I am the only one eating. This is one of my favorite ways to consume chickpeas. Sometimes I even add boiled potatoes and some yogurt. I guess the garnishes are flexible. Enjoyed all your street food recipes.
