Healthy Aloo channa chaat recipe

Chaat is a favourite at home. We all enjoy it and I do try to make it quite often with whatever ingredients I have in hand.

Tangy Chickpea salad

I think the least number of recipes are posted under the “salad”cateogory of my blog. I do make salads regularly though not everyday.

I believed that a food cannot become so flavourful without using these ingredients. Though I am not very particular about not using onions in my cooking, I try my best not to use them during festivals or when we have a religious get together especially not to offend the people who avoid it.
