A staple during the holidays or for weddings. This simple but filling chickpea salad is EVERYTHING! An added,stuffed potato, flaky pastry on top and your mind will be blown.
A popular street snack in South Asia but can easily be a meal it’s so filling. It hits all the taste buds of sweet, tangy, sour, spicy to leave you refreshed and so satisfied. Definitely hard to stop after one bite. So here’s my take on the ever popular Samosa Chaat.
1.5 cups or 1 can Garbanzo Beans (boiled or drained & rinsed)
1/2 Red Onion (chopped)
1 med Tomato (chopped)
Handful Cilantro (chopped)
2 Garlic Cloves (mashed)
3 Tbsp Tamarind Chutney
2 heaped Tbsp Plain Yogurt
1+ tsp Chaat Masala
1/4+ tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 Lemon (juiced)
Salt/Pepper (to taste)
1 Serrano Pepper (chopped, optional)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Taste to adjust.
Add more or less spice depending on tolerance.
Place into desired serving platter and top with a sprinkle of more Chaat Masala, more chopped Cilantro and a drizzle of more Tamarind Chutney.
Now nuzzle in your cooked baked or fried samosas and enjoy!
