Sprouted Chana Chaat is a great way to start your day. Sprouts are considered to be best for us as they are super foods, highly nutritive, and are one of the most balanced diets. But be cautious all beans and legumes cannot / should not be sprouted. Some of the night shade family like Rajma (kidney beans) and black whole bean (Sabut Urad) are poisonous if consumed sprouted. Best are Mung Beans and Muth Bean and of course Chana .
In the following pictures you will find the ingredients and recipe in sequence. Enjoy Chana Chaat on its own, or as I serve it– with Paranthas to make it more wholesome, filling and complete. I would recommend Chana – Puri too. Chana Chaat is a very popular snack in Bar Menus across India, so you can serve it in little pick-me-up cups or tartlets as an appetizer with cocktails in your parties.
Optional Variation: Use regular chickpeas (boiled or canned) if bengal gram is not available. Do not sprout regular white chickpeas, just boil them or use canned chickpeas, rest follow the recipe as it is.
