Bengal Gram Salad / Crunchy Bengal Gram Salad/ Kala Chana Salad

April 02, 2015 Motions and Emotions 9 Comments

Bengal gram salad is a very easy dish and packed with goodness of protein, vitamin and minerals. In salad, normally I prefer cucumber, raw onion and carrot (in winter). This time I thought of trying something new and also I had in mind I will make it simple. I had a bunch of lettuce so thought of using that in my salad. Even health freaks would love this one as I kept the dressing of salad quite simple. You can include this under low calorie diet. You can reduce little carbs (instead of 2 roti you can opt for 1) from your platter and include this power packed salad in your diet.
