Sounds like a new year resolution doesn’t it? Well it’s not way off the mark in my case as I’d promised you all a Saturday and well technically (again! )I’m here at the very end of a Saturday. But the important fact remains…I’M HERE! YEAY!
I don’t have much by way of organisation to share with you all today unless u count the number of dishes I’ve organised in the sink ready for a trip in the dishwasher.
Today was cooking day! My DH is a very happy man today (wink! )
So this is what I prepared amidst a leftover onslaught.
Chana or Chickpea or Garbanzo chaat with date chutney.
For those of you who’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know that the date and tamarind chutney is a fave of mine and you’ll find the recipe here.
For the chickpea Indian style street food chaat I used a variation.
I boiled a half kg of chickpeas in 2/3 water in a pressure cooker for about four to five whistles with salt, 3-4 green chilies, 1 small onion sliced, pinch of turmeric, red chilly powder to one’s discretion and taste along with 2 tbsp of cumin seeds.
Then i squeezed 2 large lemons for the juice and added a large teaspoon of chaat masala powder et voila! The dressing is done.
Chop a couple of green chilies, one small onion and two medium tomatoes de-seeded with some cilantro leaves for a garnish while serving.
I haven’t gone into the making of my home made chaat masala powder but that’s a post reserved for another day.
Til Tuesday, happy eating!
