      Chana chaat is a popular Indian dish you will find in street food stalls and restaurants alike. The origins of chana ki chaat go back to the B.C. era of India. Back then, there was a cultural exchange between the people which is where the variations of chana chaat recipe were born. Delicious, tangy, and bursting with exotic flavours, our chana chaat is the perfect start to your mornings and also e ... nds evenings on a pleasant note. Chop up vegetables and leafy greens of your choice to add more nutrients to this dish. You can top with sweet potatoes and julienned beets to enhance the flavours. India's original chana chaat recipe was made with fried bread, green chillies, white chickpeas, chopped coriander leaves, and fresh yoghurt. But our recipe takes on a delightful spin of the classic. If you're a diabetic, you can substitute the white garbanzo beans with dark brown chickpeas as they have a lower glycaemic index. Have this as a snack or enjoy a big bowl with your family for a filling meal. You can take a look at our other chickpeas recipes too for more inspiration or customization ideas! To remove the phytic acid from chickpeas and ensure smooth digestion, make sure you soak them overnight before you use them for making this recipe. You can also pair this recipe with your curries, soups and salads to create a full course meal for the entire family.
