Recipe Notes

The chaat masala carries enough salt so may not need more.

The recipe works perfectly with the white channa or the Kabuli channa also

You can prepare multiple quantities when you soak and cook the beans and separate out the portions.
the liquid from cooking the chickpea is aquafaba. It is a effective egg replacement.
