Do you enjoy Indian snacks like bhel puri or chaat? Here’s a healthier option

When we consider why we like these snacks so much, it’s often because of the flavours and textures they have.

These dishes are a fusion of different tastes as they have some crunch, spice, tanginess and a little sweetness too. However, they are not known to be the healthiest snacks because they are deep fried, high in fat and sauces often contain lots of sugar and additives.

Instead, to satisfy that craving, why not try a guilt-free alternative. My Chickpea Bowl recipe has incorporated the same flavours and textures that you look for in chaat except, it is also a healthy snack.

My recipe has chickpeas as the base ingredient, which makes it a high protein and fibre snack. The chickpeas are also very satisfying, so this is a great snack for when you need something filling to keep you going for a while.

With other ingredients including onion, tomato, tamarind, chilli, potato and pomegranate this snack will satisfy those cravings for savoury Indian snacks.

Make some simple healthy swaps, have this delicious, colourful snack when you’re hungry, don’t have much time or feel like some chaat-like flavours!
