chickpea salad is a simple salad made from soaking chickpeas overnight and then adding some boiled potatoes, tomatoes and topping with a lemon juice dressing.

If you wish to make the chickpea chaat healthy then all you have to do is drop the potatoes from the recipe. We love the chickpeas in the chickpea salad with potatoes recipe as chickpeas are high in fibre resulting in your stomach feeling a lot fuller than refined carbs. One cup of cooked chickpeas has 14 grams of protein, which is a really good amount.

For your kitty party, this chickpea chaat is a perfect cold salad to serve for a kitty party chaat.

I carry this chickpea chaat to work as this is a fairly one-dish meal salad to have with some chatpatta taste. Remember to pack the salad dressing in a small container and toss it in the chickpea salad with potatoes just before serving. Serve chilled.
