    Chana or Chickpea is one of the oldest legumes or pulses, known to humans. It is high in protein and fibre content. As the name suggests, this chaat is spicy, sweet, tangy and hot. This chaat can also be an excellent starter, and you can serve it both ways - warm and chilled. This chana chaat can be made using Kabuli chana or Kala channa as well. Chana chaat makes an excellent breakfast, a mid-morning snack, an after-school snack, and an evening snack too. You can alter the ingredients to suit your taste.
