Chick peas 2 (Chana Chaat)

Before I have discussed a recipe of simple chick pea chaat.. without the use of any oil. Here is a bit different recipe :) Chick peas are high in protein and fiber. This chaat is mostly cooked in Ramadan in Pak and mostly I love to have it with Daahi Baray.. In this recipe, masala has been made first and then the chick peas are mixed.. slurrrppp :P Lets move on to the recipe:
