Chick Pea Salad

Chick Pea (Garbanzo Beans) Salad

In the summer I try not to spend too much time in the kitchen and stick to salads. A lot of the street food in India (“Chaat”) has variations of chick peas on their menu. “Chaat” which has a variation of sweet, spicy and savoury sauces poured over garbanzo beans, potatoes served with cilantro, onions and tomatoes and crispy puris.

Cilantro – Mint Chutney

My next-door neighbor Sean has mint growing wild. He handed me some mint leaves and I made him this chutney from other ingredients I had on hand. This one is a keeper.

It goes well with Indian food. Ingredients: 1 cups […]

Hummus

Hummus

Whenever I have soak garbanzo beans for my chana masala, I soak extra to make hummus. This is a basic hummus recipe which I jazzed up using my organic spices.
