Another thrifty indian style salad recipe alongside my carrot salad a great accompaniment to chicken tikka.
Chickpea Salad - serves 2-3 adults depending on accompaniments
1 tin chickpeas (240g drained weight)
3-4 Fresh tomatoes, diced
half a small onion, finely diced
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp whole cumin
1/2 tsp whole mustard seeds
I have no idea if they'd eat something like this in India. To be honest, I've taken Indian ingredients and made something I liked the taste of!
Open the tin of chickpeas and drain. Add the chopped onion, tomatoes, lime juice, sugar and salt. Heat the oil in a pan and add the cumin and mustard seeds warming until they start to pop. Pour over the salad and serve alongside a curry or chicken tikka.
