Ramadan is around the corner and this is a commonly made recipe in so many households across the world.  This version is fairly mild but you can always adjust the spices to your taste.  Channa chaat is a fresh and filling salad which is often used as an ingredient in other dishes such as gol gappas, papadi chaat, and a number of other things.  It’s great on its own though- straight up.
