Chickpeas Chaat / Chana Chaat

Chickpeas chaat/Chana chaat is a spicy, tangy and healthy street food from India. This can be served as a starter or evening snack with tea. This works as a salad too. This can be quickly done when you have boiled chickpeas in hand. Either you can use black chickpeas or the white ones/ kabuli chana.
Chana Chaat

I have used raw mango here in this recipe.You can skip it also when you don't have raw mango in hand. I like to add raw mango so that it gives a light crunch to the recipe. This is easy to prepare and also a very healthy recipe. I have given the measurements/  quantity what i follow.  But you can taste and adjust the quantity according to your preference.
