Black chickpea chaat..

This chaat reminds me of an amazing experience at Manali. When we were on the way to Rohtang pass, there was a huge traffic Jam. Amongst all chaos and confusion, a vendor passed by with hot and boiled channa. All of us hogged on to his stand and had about 2-3 bowls of this awesome chaat!! I like this chaat very much, and thus wanted to share it with all .!!

 One can have this chaat for breakfast, tea time snack or even as a light healthy dinner!! Made with black chickpeas and flavoured with chaat masala and lemon juice this is a must try thing!!

1 cup black chickpea(kaala channa)
1 medium onion (nicely cut into small pieces)
1 medium tomato(nicely cut into small pieces)
1 medium boiled potato(nicely cut into small pieces)
1 tablespoon Chaat masala
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon black salt(kala namak)
1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder(bhuna jeera)

Wash and soak the chickpeas overnight or soak it in warm water for 2 hours.
Boil the chick peas in pressure cooker. Drain the water .
In a bowl add the boiled chickpeas, onions, tomato and potato. Add all the other ingredients and mix well.
Serve it in a serving bowl or for ease in disposable cups.
Yummy Blackpeas chaat is ready !! 

Optional notes:
One can also add additional chutneys to make it more tangy.
