Indo-Pak Chickpea Street Food/ Channa Chaat

Eid Mubarak!

May the prayers of those who were lucky enough to perform Hajj this year be accepted!

I’m sharing my mom’s famous Channa Chaat recipe today.  Anytime there is a potluck, people beg for my mom to bring her signature dish.  It’s really easy to throw together and can easily be halved, doubled, tripled, etc.

I hope everyone has a safe, happy, and fun-filled Eid 🙂
