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. My kids like to have chopped raw carrots almost everyday or I make raita/pachadi with different veggies. But eating vegetables in raw form almost everyday is not my cup of tea. Atleast I thought so.chickpea salad

But lately I have been browsing through a number of instagram feeds where a variety of salad recipes are posted. I am beginning to like salads actually. I find it so interesting to use a variety of ingredients and dressings. I have been making salads almost everyday now. I love to add grilled veggies ,tofu, yogurt ,pickles and a number of other unimaginable things which I never thought a salad would consist of. You can follow my instagram feed where I post my salad and some recipes in the insta stories too!!


This recipe of salad is a very primary one which I make quite regularly. I love to add tamarind,red chilli powder and sugar as it gives a taste and flavour of Indian chaats. This one is quite healthy too. I eat only salads for lunch sometimes and try to avoid the carbs.Yet its very filling and keeps me energised the whole day.
