Chickpea Salad (Warm)

Hello all! Sorry for not being regular here..I went on a long holiday to India...and enjoyed a lot...but that cant be an excuse for not being here I am with a quick and easy but yummy recipe for cold and lazy afternoons...


1 can of chickpeas (drained)
1 onion (chopped)
1 green chilly (chopped)
2 cloves of garlic (pealed and chopped)
1 tsp cumin seed (whole)
1 tsp red chilly flakes
Few drops of lemon juice
Oil for frying
Salt to taste


Heat the oil in a pan then add the cumin seeds, garlic and the chilly flakes. Need to fry for a minute so that you get the aroma of the garlic then you add the onions and the chopped green chilli in to the pan and fry till they are soft. Then add the chickpeas and continue frying for 2-3 min. Add the few drops of lemon juice and season it well before taking off the heat and serve hot.

Optional: Some fresh coriander leaves will add another dimension to the dish.
