Kabuli chana chat – A healthy and delicious chick peas and mix fruit chat
Kabuli chana chaat is a very healthy ,colourful and delicious mix fruit salad or chaat. It is a very good source of natural fiber,minerals,vitamins and all the nutrition needed for the body. A diet consist of all the colourful veggies and fruits can help to prevent High Blood Pressure and good for Heart health. It also prevents some kinds of Cancer, very good for digestion.
You can add as many raw vegetables and fruits of different colors as you can. Specially during summer it’s a good idea to have a healthy salad for your meal. Fiber rich diet makes us full soon so we never tend to overeat. This helps to keep our weight in control.
I have added boiled chick peas but if you are short of time then you can use tinned chick peas in it..Instead of kabuli chana you can use boiled kala chana too. I have added my favourite fruits and vegetables but you can add pineaapple , kiwi, pear, strawberry ,apple ,grapes ,melon,papaya or add any fruit of your choice. For the dressing you can add parsley,oregano or thyme instead of mint leaves.
The dressing I have add is very delicious ,healthy and mildly spiced and added a tangy flavour to the salad/ chaat. Try this chana chaat once you will be making it regularly.
