Black Channa Salad/Chaat

                                                         I have eaten salads with Kabuli channa,black eyed peas and sprouts in many restaurants and at home rarely but not the black channa.It is healthier than the white channa.It has a lot of health benefits and very nutricious and filling salad.It is oil free,sugar free,fat free and protein rich and fibre rich.
I have started making more and more protein rich foods now a days one such inclusion is the bean salads or you can call it Black channa chaat!!!!
