potato chick pea salad is a simple salad made from soaking kabuli chana overnight and then adding some boiled potatoes, tomatoes and topping with a lemon juice dressing.

If you wish to make the potato chana salad healthy then all you have to do is drop the potatoes from the recipe. Potatoes being high in simple carbohydrates will lead to weight gain so avoid them. We love the chickpeas in the potato chana salad recipe as chickpeas are high in fibre resulting in your stomach feeling a lot fuller than refined carbs. One cup of cooked chickpeas has 14 grams of protein, which is a really good amount.

I carry this potato chickpea salad to work as this is a fairly one dish meal salad to have. Remember to pack the salad dressing in a small container and toss it in the indian chickpea salad just before serving. Serve chilled.
