Kala Chana Chaat/Black Chickpea salad/Karuppu Konda Kadalai salad is a fresh and refreshing salad packed with proteins and nutrients. 


Black chickpeas along with the crunchy veggies in a mild mint flavor obviously taste yummy. Before preparing this salad, you need to soak the black chickpea in water overnight. Next day, discard the water and pressure cook it till soft. 

This nutrition-packed salad is easy to prepare and is a great snack for weight watchers. We are adding a flavourful dip "Mint Curd Chutney" to this salad,  whose recipe I have already shared.
