Chanajor Salad / Flatten black chickpea salad

Chana jor is a very popular street snack in India , also very popular during train travel too. Vendors come inside the train during travel or while train stops at station, they all come with their variety of snacks. We have been eating this snack since childhood. But to do a very healthy twist instead of just onion and tomatoes and spices, I add cucumber, red capsicum, lettuce and make a healthy salad. Its filling and delicious and chatpata for evening snack or quick lunch. I made it for lunch and it was very filling.

Will see you all after a short break. till then enjoy.


2 cups Chana Jor (mashed Chickpeas)
1 small red onion finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
1 cucumber finely chopped
1/2 head of lettuce
1 green chili finely chopped
chat masala as per taste or sometimes chanajor packet has its own masala
lime juice


Chop all the vegetables  and chat masala and put it in bowl.

At the time of serving only, add chana jorgaram in salad and serve immediately.
Add lime juice is its not chat pata .

I sprinkled masala peanuts on top for some more crunch.
