Chickpeas are also known as Garbanzo Beans. They are a very good source of Folic Acid, Fiber and Manganese.
They are also a good source of Protien, as well as minerals such as Iron, Copper, Zinc and Magnesium.
As a good source of Fiber, Garbanzo Beans(Chickpeas) can help to lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar levels.
Chickpeas makes a great food especially for diabetics.
Canned chickpeas are fine, but fresh boiled ones are slightly higher in vitamins and minerals. Both are equally good sources of fibre, including soluble fibre which can help to lower cholesterol. I always prefer the fresh boiled chickpeas rather than the canned ones.


1. Chickpeas (Soaked & Boiled) -- 1Cup
2. Urad Dal -- 2tbsp
3. Salt -- To Taste
4. Chaat Masala -- 1/4tbsp
5. Green Chilli -- 4-5
6. Red Chilli -- 4-5
7. Oil -- 2tbsp

Method To Prepare:
1. First heat oil in a pan and add Urad Dal, Green Chilli, Red Chilli. Fry them for 5min.

2. Then add the boiled chikpeas to the pan.
3. Now add Salt and Chaat Masala to it and Mix it well. (If you want you can even add 1/4tbsp of Garam Masala. But its totally optional.)

4. Finally Transfer everything to a bowl, garnish with fresh coriander leaves and Serve it.

This is a good snack to have along with a cup of Tea.
