To prepare the chana and potato salad all you need to do is boil kabuli chana and potatoes. Cut the potatoes into cubes. Make sure you do not overcook the kabuli chana or they’ll become mushy and the salad would not be enjoyed.

Potatoes being high in simple carbohydrates will lead to weight gain so avoid them.

One cup of cooked chickpeas has 14 grams of protein, which is a really good amount. Laced with sesame oil and dotted with chopped coriander, this peppy dressing transforms the ingredients into a Chana and Potato Salad, which really lives up to its name.
I carry this potato chickpea salad to work as this is a good one dish meal salad to have. Remember to pack the salad dressing in a small container and toss it in the Indian chickpea salad just before serving. Serve chilled.
