This chana chaat is part of my cousin’s protein rich diet. Somehow in our minds the word diet means tasteless. But my aunt has made her dieting so much easier with this protein rich recipe without compromising on the taste.
For a vegetarian like me, pulses and legumes are the main sources of protein and I am always looking out for newer recipes because daal everyday does get boring. I had this chaat at her place and I was hooked to it. Now I make it quite often and take it with me in a snack box to office. It’s perfect for those before and after lunch hunger pangs.
