Channa chat or Chickpeas chat is a simple protein-rich dish prepared with a variety of ingredients. First, boil chickpeas and some potatoes separately. Then chop onions, tomatoes, green chilies, fresh coriander leaves and keep them aside. Cut the boiled potatoes into small one-bite pieces. Now take a large bowl and add all the ingredients to it. Next, add salt, red chili powder, cumin powder, chat masala, and Coriander Chutney mix well. Next, add lemon juice to enhance flavors. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve. If you are having a get-together, keep the Coriander Chutney in a separate bowl so that the guests can add it according to their taste.

Pakoras make a quick yet delicious dish. In a large bowl, add julienne potatoes and onions, finely cut spinach, and green chilies.
Then, add gram flour salt, red chili powder, chat masala, cumin powder, baking powder, Kasuri methi, garam masala powder, and mix it well while adding half a cup of warm water. Add water in small quantities only as required.
Take a large pan and add oil to fry the pakoras. Fill the mix in a spoon and pour a small amount of mixture into the oil. Fry until golden brown. Drain all the access oil on a paper towel. Serve it with Corriander Chutney or tomato ketchup.
Tip: You can do the same with potatoes only. Just cut potatoes in wedges if making only potato pakoras. Don’t forget to sprinkle chat masala over it to enhance the flavors.
