Garbanzo Beans Chaat ( Clean Eating Version)
Garbanzo Beans or Chickpeas are a nutrient-rich food, providing high amounts of protein, fiber, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B-6 and thiamine, making them a healthy addition to any diet.
They may also help you lose weight, especially if you eat them instead of higher-fat sources of protein like beef, or chicken. They are high in dietary fibre which means it’s harder for the body to digest them, in turn making their glyceminc index low.
Garbanzo Beans Chaat (Black chickpeas) is one of Pakistani’s favorite food made with chickpeas and other spices. Everyone will like it and ask for more when you serve.
I am beginning a journey of Weight Watchers friendly cooking to keep me and my family active and healthy. Garbanzo Beans or Black chickpeas(kala chanas) are good for weight loss. The recipe I am sharing with you today is an all year, all occasion kind of garbanzo bean chaat (kala chana chaat), that works as a great salad, too.
