Chana chaat is the Desi version of a salad. The base is chickpeas or chana with onions, tomatoes, green chilies and coriander as the supporting characters finished off with chaat masala and lemon juice for that necessary spice and khataaz!
Chickpeas can be boiled in advance, and stored in the freezer. If you enjoy chana chaat regularly (or for Ramadan), it’s a good idea to boil a big batch and make packets in the freezer. Just thaw and use as needed.
