Black Chana Chaat | Black Chickpea Chaat

Chickpea chat or Chana chaat is a popular street food, especially in northern part of India. You can make this with white chickpeas or fresh green chickpeas, or black chickpeas. I am using these black chickpeas only for one reason that I like it 🙂

Soak chana overnight, and then you can get this protein rich snack ready in minutes. I still remember my childhood days when my mom used to give overnight soaked chickpeas to me and my brother in morning, thanks to its protein content.

This chana chat is a great lunch box meal for kids, simply soak chickpeas, boil it (or can skip if you don’t liked boiled ones), top up with onion, boiled potatoes, tomatoes and lemon juice, that is it! Of course you can add other veggies too like beetroot, cucumber, avocado, etc.

Recipe Notes
  • To get the boiled chana, soak the chana for 6-8 hours in enough water. Then pressure cook them for 3-4 whistle. Once the pressure is released, drain the water and use these boiled chana as per the recipe.
  • Here at my place we get small red Radish, round in shape.  I have used them in my recipe, if you have white long ones, use half of it. You can either grate or finely chop it.
  • You can make this chaat without boiling the chana as raw chickpea/chana chaat. That too taste awesome. Similarly you can use raw moong sprouts too for this recipe to make moong sprout chaat.
