How to make Idli and Garbanzo Beans Chaat

  1. Take white chickpeas and green peas and soak them separately in sufficient water overnight.
  2. Then drain the water very well and pressure cook them till 2 whistles blow. Once boiled, strain the chickpeas and green peas. Let them come to room temperature.
  3. Grind 1/2 cup of boiled chick peas and 1/4 cup of green peas into a coarse paste, so as to thicken the gravy. Allow it to cool.
  4. In the meanwhile, take a pan, heat 4 tablespoon of oil in it and add the cut pieces of idlis. Fry them till they turn golden brown in colour and keep them aside.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a pan, add in the cumin seeds, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, a pinch of salt and turmeric powder. Mix it well and let it cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Now add the boiled and mashed potatoes along with the grinded coarse paste of peas. Cook it on a low flame for 2 minutes.
  7. Then add the remaining 1/2 cup of boiled white chick peas, chopped ginger, mint leaves juice, chaat powder, amchur, salt, red chilli powder. Add 2 cups of water and mix it well. Cover it with a lid and cook on a low flame for 5 minutes.
  8. Once it is cooked, transfer this into serving bowls. Garnish it with roasted flattened rice, fried idli pieces and chopped mint leaves.
  9. Serve it hot with green chutney/ tomato sauce.

My Tip:

I used roasted flattened rice for garnishing as it is healthy. Note that the idli pieces should be golden brown in colour.
