Channa Chaat
Channa Chaat Recipe / Aloo Channa Chaat with step wise pictures. Channa Chaat is a simple, healthy and refreshing Indian style Salad with chaat chutneys, fresh onion, tomato and cilantro. I love all kinds of chaat, the name is enough to make me feel fresh and good. Love anything with chaat chutneys. Instead of making Channa Sundal I made this channa chaat, this is a zero oil, vegan, healthy, filling and delicious snack. I had pomegranate in hand, so added few pom seeds to the chaat. The sweet and mild sour taste of pom seeds took the simple chaat to next level. But Channa Chaat can be made without pom seeds too.
