  • 1/2 cup green chickpeas fresh
  • carrot small piece
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1/4 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp Coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp Jeera/ cumin powder
  • A dash of chaat masala
  • 1/2 tsp black salt kala namak
  • Salt to Taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon or to taste


  • In case you are using dried chickpeas soak them overnight and pressure cook them for 4 whistles.
  • Drain completely and use the chickpeas the liquid use to make aquafaba.
  • Since I used fresh ones after rinsing the chickpeas I added salt about ¼ tsp and mixed them well. Let it sit on the counter for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop the cucumber, carrots, coriander leaves, and green chillies juice the lime. Set aside.
  • On low flame in a thick bottomed kadhai/wok heat the chickpeas. In about 5 minutes they will be cooked. (You can cook them further if you need but this was ok for us.)
  • Add the rest of the ingredients except the salt and mix well.
  • Check the seasoning and adjust.
  • Add a dash of lemon juice and serve.


  • Use onions, tomatoes even raw mangoes when in season.
  • I have not used these ingredients as we were to go out and raw onion was not what we want to go out with. Mangoes and tomatoes are something that hubby avoids I was too bored to cut for myself. Please feel free to use them. If using raw mangoes check the amount of lime you use.
  • Be careful while adding the table salt. You will be adding chaat masala and black salt to the salad as well, both of which have saltiness of their own.
