spicy chickpea salad.JPG

Day 3 and the cravings hit hard today, I don't know whether it was because I was thinking about it or because my body was missing all the sugar it was so used to? :), I wanted something "chatpata", so I made this spicy salad-but I am STILL CRAVING CHOCOLATE!..

  • Boiled Chickpeas-1 cup

  • Onion- 1 large finely chopped

  • Tomato- 1 large chopped

  • Green chillies-2 chopped, deseeded

  • Tamarind pulp- 1 tbsp

  • Lemon juice-2 tbsp

  • Salt and red chilli pwdr- acc. to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss well, mashing the chana's a little too, season acc. to taste, serve with kulchas if desired.I had just the chana salad.

This recipe triggers back memories of College days in Punjab University, where we used to eat these everyday off the roadside vendor with a huge brass vessel atop his bicycle,a very common sight in North India and a boon for the students who could, at times afford only this- Chana and two kulchas for Rs.5/- :)

Well coming to DAY 3, this is what I had today-

  • Early Morning-Tea-1 cup sweetened with Sugar free Natura+handful of besan bhujia

  • Breakfast- Buttermilk- 1 glass with sweetener and 1 tsp Protinex powder +1 Besan and soya chapati with bittergourd vegetable

  • Lunch-2 Besan soya chapatis +bittergourd veggie

  • Evening-1 large bowl Spicy Chickpea salad(recipe above)+ 1 glass Cucumber and spinach juice

  • Dinner-Rajma-1 katori+1 egg cooked in non-stick pan

  • Exercise- half an hour walk
