Chickpea and Apple Chaat
2 cups cooked chickpeas
½ cup chopped red onion
½ cup chopped red radish
½ cup chopped honey crisp apple (or any apple of choice)
½ cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 finely chopped serrano pepper (or any other green chili of choice)
3 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp of honey
¼ tsp crushed black peppercorns
3 tsp Chaat Masala (you can add more if needed)
1 tsp dry roasted and finely ground cumin powder
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt to taste
Gently mix all ingredients (leaving a few chopped cilantro leaves for garnish). Taste to make sure that the flavors are balanced. Adjust as needed, and place in a serving bowl and top with the remaining cilantro.
Cover with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator for an hour or so for the flavors to absorb and evenly distribute.
