Chana Chaat (From Leftover)

Hi All....
      We all are fond of Rajma Curry (red kidney beans), Black Channa Curry (brown chickpeas) and White Channa Curry (white chickpeas).In a week we make one of these but sometimes we get more of the quantity than required
Now what to do ??? Today's recipe is about leftovers 
Channa chaat is not only less calorie chaat but healthy can try this recipe for your kidos too :-)


  • 2 cups of black channa gravy
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 boiled potato (chopped) (optional)
  • 2 green chilies (finely chopped)
  • Few coriander leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1 lemon juice
  • Chaat masala taste


  1. Separate channa from the gravy (don't discard the gravy have it like a soup by adding little bit of lemon juice)
  2. Keep the channa on high flame till the gravy dries up completely.
  3. Remove from the fire add chopped onion, tomatoes, green chilies, potato and coriander leaves.
  4. Sprinkle chaat masala and lemon juice. Mix well. (Don't add salt and seasoning as its already there in channa)
  5. Serve as a chaat.
Note: This recipe you can try with boiled channa too.(Add seasoning according to your taste)
Instead of channa you can take Black Eyed Beans (lobhia), Red Kidney Beans 
(rajma), White Chickpeas (kabuli channa) too...........
