Chana Chaat Recipe - How to make Chana Chaat - Beach Side Chana chat:

Chana Chaat recipe I have shared here is one of the most healthy chat recipes. We are not adding any fried items like bhel, poori or papdi. Making chana chat is also quiet easy. Once you have the cooked chana in hand, you are 95 percent done and you have only 5 minutes task remaining to get a wonderful chana chat in hand. I would say it is definitely a healthy evening snack option for adults and kids.

Actually I had no plans to make this chana chaat. One day I soaked chana(white chicpeas, konda kadalai in tamil) overnight for making chana pulao for the next day lunch. I had a lot of chana leftover. So, I drained the excess water and kept in fridge for one more day for making chana masala for poori. But I was too busy to make it and I picked up this easy chana chaat recipe to use the leftover chana.

You must have tasted this chana chaat if you like eating chat items in beach. Now let us see how to make chana chaat.
