Chana Jor Garam

Chana jor Garam
During my last visit to our nearby Indian store, I picked up this Chana Jor Garam packet.  Most Mumbaikars might know this as a chatpata snack.  For some, Chana Jor Garam might sound new.  These are flattened black chickpeas or chana flavored with a tangy blend of spices.  You can enjoy these chanas like popcorn or savor it like Bhel with raw mango, onions.

Ingredients:
Chana Jor Garam - 2 cups
Onion - 1 small
Tomato - 1 medium
Lemon Juice - 1 1/2 tbsp
Aamchur (Dry Mango Powder) - 1/2 tsp
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs
Shev/Sev - about 1/2 cup

How to prepare Chana Jor Garam Chaat:
Discard the seeds and the soft pulp of the tomato.  Finely chop tomato and onion.  Finely chop coriander leaves.
In a mixing bowl, add onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, aamchur, coriander leaves and little salt.  Mix well.  Add chanar jor garam and shev.  Toss all the ingredients.  Add more lemon juice and/or salt if required.
You can add roasted or fried peanuts, cashews, fried green peas/vatane as well.
Enjoy tangy Chana Chaat as a light snack.
