recipe notes

few tips for making chana chaat recipe:

  1. you could adjust the spice powders, black salt and lime juice as per your taste
  2. when you boil the chana, add some salt to the water in which you would boil the chana.
  3. do not add green chili if you do not want to eat a spicy and hot chaat.
  4. if you want to serve the chana chaat cold, then do not add the crushed pooris and coriander leaves. when you serve the cold chaat, then you add the crushed pooris and coriander leaves.
  5. the chana chaat will be warm if you have freshly cooked the chanas and are not using leftover cooked chanas.
  6. if you cook the chana then the preparation time will be 25-30 minutes - to cook the chanas/chickpeas in the pressure cooker. take 1.75 cup of chana (white chickpeas) to get approximate 3 cups boiled chanas.
