Harbhara Chaat recipe with step by step photos
To make Harbara Chaat, first wash the fresh hara chana.
- Boil enough water in a deep non-stick pan.
- Add salt to taste. This will provide the necessary seasoning to the boiled choliya.
- Also, add a pinch of soda bi- carb. This helps in retaining the bright green colour and to fasten the cooking process.
- Cook them in enough water for 5 to 7 minutes.
- Remove from the flame, drain the water.
- Add cold water and keep aside. The cold water refreshes, stops the internal cooking process & prevents the harbhara from changing the colour.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan.
- Once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida.
- Now add the hara chana and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the salt. Just a dash of salt is enough as we have already added it while boiling.
- Now add black salt.
- Add the chillies. You can increase the amount if you are a spicy food lover.
- Add the chilli powder.
- Add the coriander. Here are some health benefits of dhania.
- Mix well and cook on a medium flame for more 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Switch off the flame. Just before serving add the lemon juice and mix the Harbara Chaat well.
Garnish the Harbara Chaat with coriander and serve immediately.
- Mixed sprouts chaat, sprouts and corn chaat, moong sprouts and potato salli chaat, sprouted moong chaat are some other filling evening sncaks.
