Black Channa Chaat

 Hello friends,
Here we meet again for another easy recipe. Read on....

So we all are bored of eating the same old daal chawal sometimes and wish to value add to the staple food by a side dish, salad or added component, right?

Black Chana Chaat

So keeping in mind the nutrient factors and health part, I am making something different today. A brown Channa or Bengal gram is a smaller variant than the regular Kabuli channa, high in dietary fibre and is one of the most protein-rich beans there is. Copper, zinc and manganese are present in it. So lets get started with the recipe of  Brown channa chaat.


  • 1 cup kala channa
  • 1 onion ( finely chopped)
  • 1 Tomato ( finely chopped)
  •   2 small potatoes (boiled peeled and cut in small pieces)
  • 1 tsp Chaat masala 
  • 1 green chilly ( finely chopped)
  • 1 small lime
  • I tsp Anardaana powder
  • Corrinader leaves
  • Salf only if required.   


1.First we need to wash and soak the channa overnight. 

2. Place the channa in a pressure cooker with a pinch of salt and the potatoes to cook for about 15 minutes.Chana should be soft and tender.

3. Peel the potato and make cubes. 

4. In a large bowl combine the chopped onion, tomatoes, chilly, and potatoes.

5. Now add the cooked channa to the mixture.

6. Now add the chaat masala, anaar daana powder and lime.

7. Add corriander to garnish

Suggestions and Variations

You can add cucumber instead of potato. Also cut raw mango and fresh pomegranate instead on anaar daana. Serve it like a snack or even at parties. People will love you for serving up something healthy instead of fried samosas.
