Chana Raita

I had some leftover chana and I thought of trying out a raita with it. This was the first time I tried this, so I was doubtful about how chana mixed with yoghurt would taste. But it tasted great and I added some chilli powder, chaat masala for a chatpata taste. It's so simple to make and a healthy raita can be made so quick. You can use green chillies instead of chilli powder and also add other veggies such as cucumber, carrots or onion. I have used only chana here and I am sure combo with other veggies would taste awesome. It's a healthy raita for those who are on a diet and can be served with rice or indian breads.


What you need?

1 cup cooked Chana/Chickpeas
1.5 cup Yogurt
1 tsp Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Chaat Masala
few Coriander leaves chopped
Salt

How to prepare?

Beat the yogurt well. Add all other ingredients to it and mix well. Serve chilled.
Enjoy this healthy raita !



Notes:
* It's better to use the chana cooked with little salt.
* You can add cucumber, onion or tomato with chana.
* You can also do tempering and add if you wish.
