Peas Chaat / Peas Masala Chaat Recipe / Green Peas Masala Chaat ~ Healthy & Refreshing Snack !

My H love sundals(kind of legume salad) and he mostly prefer it for evening snacks. Though I am not much fond of sundals very rarely prefer Chickpeas/Channa sundal and i love eating these protein packed & fiber rich legumes in chaat form. Peas Chaat / Channa Chaat or any legume simply cooked and sprinkled with chaat masala and few lemon drops would make my snack plate more happy and filling.

This Peas Chaat  / Peas Masala Chaat is one such healthy & refreshing snack, a pure vegan recipe. This recipe was shared to me by my sister long back, 2 yrs back. I cook this peas chaat often but couldn't get chance & time to blog it. But this time made it for blog and clicked happily :) This peas chaat doesn't involve chaat chutneys since we add fresh cilantro, mint, tamarind, jaggery gives spicy, sour & sweet taste. But serving with chaat chutneys makes it even more tasty and refreshing. Without any further delay will move on the recipe....
