Chana Chaat is a very quick snack recipe to satisfy your sudden craving for street food kind of brunch. It’s an oil free chaat that works as a great salad too. You can use either black chickpeas, green chana or kabuli chana to make this chaat. Here I have also used boiled potato to increase the taste of the chaat, but you can simply skip that step and can adjust the spices as per your taste.
