Chickpea Yogurt Salad....step by step.

Print Friendly and PDF

This is my favorite healthy salad ... a perfect break from all the Christmas goodies. Not a bit of oil of any kind in this salad, I used plain fresh yogurt/curd... perfect meal with roti or you can have it own its own (preferably chilled) ...a true protein packed salad...perfect to free your system from all the Christmas goodies.

Author: Nisa Homey
How I made it:
Soaked, boiled chickpea: About 1 cup.
Tomato: 1, chopped.
Onion: 1, chopped.
Green Chilly: 1, chopped finely (add or decrease according to your tolerance level).
Half cucumber chopped.
About 3 to 4 tbsp of fresh yogurt.
Salt to taste.
Cilantro to garnish.


1. Soak Chickpeas for altleast 4 hours or soak it overnight and cook in a pressure cooker with little water and salt for 10 to 15 min after the whistle. Open and check if the chickpea is cooked and evaporate the remaining water if there is any.

2. Take all these veggies....

3. And chop them up.

4. Add  3 to 4 tbsp of fresh yogurt and mix well, add salt accordingly. Sprinkle coriander leaves.

Serve Chilled wrapped in Indian Flatbread/Roti or have it own its own.

Enjoy this healthy oil-free salad!!

Wishing all my readers, friends, and every one who has encourage me a very happy and prosperous New Year!!
