Chickpea Salad with Raw Mango


As promised in my previous post, I am here with yet another flavorsome recipe, which is again apt to the tag line of my blog, which says fast to cook, good to eat. When mangoes are in season, i love to get myself drench completely with the seasonal produce...I love to relish stating from green raw mangoes to yellow juicy mangoes. There is something about the mangoes which make me remind of my childhood days and the summer vacations.... probably my next post....but as of now, scroll down to dwell yourself with this simple and yum salad.
Chickpeas
I am not a salad person, but once in a while to skip my lunch I settle down with salad. Few days back, I have soaked some chickpeas to make chana masala with roti for dinner. And while making it, I felt the amount of chickpeas I soaked in to make chana masala is more and so I restored some to add in some other recipe. I refrigerated those and completely forgot about them. Last noon when I was thinking what to eat in lunch….?  I thought of these chickpeas and thought I will make a fresh salad using them, which will be filling and appetizing too.
Chickpea Salad with Raw Mango
So I made this salad with minimal ingredients. I used raw mango for that tangy crunch in the recipe. I love to bite on those tiny bite size mango pieces which gives taste buds an tickling sensation. This is one simple and filling salad recipe. It has got protein and yum factor in it. You can even serve this on bed of lettuce leaves during parties. The best part is it takes less time when you have cooked chickpeas ready in pantry.

It's quite similar to the channa chart we make at home except the raw mango pieces. I am not a big fan of eating raw mangoes, but this I could definitely try.

Nisha said...

Yum. As soon as I saw that picture of kairi (raw mango), my tongue rolled inside my mouth. Love it. And the salad looks good too. Adding pomegranate seeds would be perfect!

Once when I had excess pressure cooked chickpeas & I couldn't plan until 2 days what to cook with them, I froze them. Hehe.
