Chickpeas (Chana) Raitha

          I have been a little busy the last few days, couldn't spend much time with my blog, and today's dish is also a very simple one. A simple raitha that would go well with any briyani or mixed rice, or if you are on a diet, this could be a complete meal by itself..

Need To Have

  • Cooked Chickpeas - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped Capsicum - 1/4 cup
  • Chopped Tomatoes - 1/4 cup
  • Curd Or Yogurt - 1/2 cup
  • Salt - to taste

          Beat the curd well, mix in the chickpeas, capsicum, tomatoes and salt, that's it. I have not added any other flavoring ingredients, this raitha gets all its flavor from the crunchy chopped capsicum (green pepper).

You can also add some chopped green chillies if you want it a little spicy.
If you want some other flavor, then add some roasted cumin powder, personally I liked the flavor from the capsicum.
