Chickpeas salad – Chana kachumber salad recipe – Chickpeas cucumber salad


Chickpeas salad – Kabuli chana kachumber salad – a vegan Indian style chickpeas salad with cucumber, tomatoes and onions. I made this salad with simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing. This also has sesame seeds and walnuts for added nutrition.

Nuts and seeds are a good source of protein and healthy fats. It is recommended to have a handful of nuts and seeds every day for overall health. Apart from making chutneys and gunpowder‘s with these nuts and seeds, I find these salads as an easy way to include these in our daily diet.

Along with nuts and seeds, I also try to include different beans and lentils for meeting our daily protein requirement. Though I make traditional curries and dals with different beans and lentils, sometimes I make these kinds of salads. These are very simple to do and can be eaten as it is for a light meal. You can find similar bean salad recipes here on this blog.
