Kala Channa Chaat | Black Chickpeas Chaat | Healthy Chaat Recipe

Black Chickpeas Chaat_kala channa chaat

Black Chickpeas Chat is a simple & very healthy evening snack for all. You can even name this as Black Chickpea Salad but I prefer saying it Chaat. Chaat has its own uniqueness and I’m a very big fan of chaat items especially those sold on the roadside. I know these are not healthy but having once a while is acceptable. Chaat has all flavors in it spicy, sweet, tangy etc etc. Here I share this healthy & easy chaat recipe.
