Chhole, or chickpea, is one such ingredient that you can use to make a bevy of dishes. From hummus to salad, to chole ki sabzi and to chaat, a handful of chickpeas can create magic in any avatar. Chickpea is also replete with many antioxidants and minerals. Chhole is also packed with protein. It is, in fact, one of the best sources of plant-based protein. Vegetarians often find it hard to find enough good quality source of protein; for them, this delish chole chaat may prove to be of immense benefit.
