Nutritious Legume Chaat!!

I came up with this recipe because my two wonderful friends are into this event 'Susan & Sra'. Susan is the brainchild of the lovely event My Legume Love Affair. Sra is hosting it for the month of October. I simply could not resist myself from contributing :)

I combined a few legumes, veggies and spices to make a hot and sweet chaat which was a great combination with our evening tea.

Ingredients :
10 small puris (pani puris)
2-3 tbsp baby lima beans (frozen)
2-3 tbsp Speckled butter beans (frozen)
3-4 tbsp Blackeye peas (frozen)
3-4 tbsp Corn (frozen)
3 tbsp chopped Cucumber
3 tbsp chopped Tomato
3 tbsp chopped onions
Freshly chopped Cilantro
1 tbsp mint- cilantro chutney (home made or store bought)
1 tbsp date- tamarind chutney ( home made or store bought)
(if you don't have these chutneys you can simply use lemon juice and chaat masala)



Preparation:

Mix up all the three beans in a microwave bowl, sprinkle 2-3 tbsp water and heat it up for 25- 30 seconds in the microwave. If you feel that the beans are not soft enough to eat you can cook it for some more time depending on the microwave. Try to keep the shape of the beans.

Mix up all the other ingredients with the beans, fill it into the puris and serve with tea :). It makes a delicious and nutritious evening time snack.

Oh, that chaat looks great, so tiny and neatly packed :-) a lot of work, I am afraid. i like how colorful it is.

As much as I love chips, this is so much more nourishing a snack. : }
I'm drooling over the cilantro, tamarind and onion, too.
