  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 on the vine tomatoes, diced
  • 1 seedless cucumber, diced
  • 1 large shallot, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of chaat masala (great recipe to DIY your own here)

for the mint chutney::

  • 1/2 cup of chopped mint leaves

  1. in a large mixing bowl, add the salad ingredients and combine until everything is coated in the spices. adjust salt and pepper accordingly.
  2. set aside the salad mix and in a food processor, add all of the mint chutney ingredients. pulse until the chutney is combined - it won't be entirely smooth, that's okay.
  3. line a sheet tray with parchment paper and pour the salad mixture in an even layer on top.
  4. add additional toppings like fresh herbs and jalapeños. drizzle on the yogurt and mint chutney.
  5. serve cold or at room temperature, enjoy!
