The chana chaat served in miniature sized pooris and with sev sprinkled on top! Delightful snack! :)
1 big mug of cooked chana/chickpeas (I prefer fresh, not canned!)
½ to ¾ cup of sweet tamarind sauce
3 potatoes, peeled, diced into tiny pieces and then boiled until soft, n drained
1 onion diced very finely
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp. red chili powder
1 tsp. freshly ground cumin powder
1 tsp. red chili flakes
2-3 green chilies chopped
some coriander, chopped
salt to taste
Mix everything together. Taste and adjust flavors according to preference. Serve in pooris with sev sprinkled on top or can be had in a bowl with crushed crispy papuri. I served this in pooris (store-bought), and loved the burst of flavors when biting into the pooris! Very yummy and quite healthy! :)
