Kala chana chat -- A starter or a Snack

A year ago , we had been to a friend-Aunty's place & she served us an authentic gujrathi platter.Platter contained Black(kala)Chana Chat for starter , Phulka with authentic aloo sabji  & some Amras for dessert. Not to forget the  Salad & pickles .
Kala chana with a blend of little vegie's & a little bit spice powders make an excellent starter... Well its a chat..  Its quite healthy & ideal for an evening snack too. Recollect my days in Mumbai, where the  telawala bhaiyas used to sell a similar chat made with green channa outside the stations. Mmm .. wot aroma.. You just cant stop grabing one in a paper cone.

  • In a clean large bowl , add all the ingredients together and mix them well with a spatula.Add a dash of lemon juice & garnish with coriander leaves. Serve the Chat in a Paper cone or a bowl.
