Chana or Chickpea Chat can be served as a starter or a quick snack. Healthy, as its high in protein and absolutely delicious as it is garnished with a spicy and also a tamarind and date chutney. I have served it in cones made of Papad. You may serve it in a plate or in a bowl depending on one’s preference. Recipe Link to the Chutneys is given below.
- 100 gms Chickpeas
- 1 large tomato
- 1 large onion
- 100 gms sweet Corn
- 1 tbsp Green chutney
- 1 tbsp Tamarind and date chutney
- 1/2 tsp Everest Chat Masala
- Coriander leaves
- Juice of half a Lemon
Wash and soak chickpeas for eight hours. Pressure cook with salt. Allow to cool completely. Pressure cook the Corn too. Chop the onion, tomato and coriander leaves fine. Tip the cooled corn and Chana into a bowl. Add the green chutney, tamarind and date chutney, Everest Chat Masala, the chopped onion tomato and coriander leaves and adjust salt. Drizzle with lemon juice and serve.
Cut the Papad into two halves. Lightly roast them on both sides on a Tava/ griddle and immediately roll them into the shape of a cone when it is still warm. It has to be done swiftly, as the Papad breaks when it cools.
