If you are thinking that this is some healthy daily daal recipe, then here's the surprise. It's not!
:-D It's just a Mumbai street food that my husband loves. It starts with ready made & deep fried chana daal, generally available in the local farsan marts. Daalwala bhaiyya used to chop those onions so finely that you couldn't really make out if it's onion or radish. Many doubted it was radish especially when onions prices had soared to the roof tops!:-D Anyways, it tasted great.
Daal ChaatSpicy Fried Daal Salad
2 cups spicy, fried chana daal
1 small onion, minced
1-2 green chilies, minced (or per taste)
A pinch of chaat masala
1 tbsp minced cilantro/coriander leaves
1 lemon, freshly squeezed
1. Mix all the ingredients in the order mentioned.
2. Serve immediately.
1. Do not make this chaat too much in advance. It will turn soggy.
