Potato and Chickpea Salad

Every now and then I hear about a new place opening up but only recently I’ve seen a lot salad bars in Delhi popping up! Thank god for places with healthy food in Delhi like Lean Chef, TLC Kitchen and Salad Chef, I can now enjoy good food without the added calories! If you visit these places you’ll be surprised to see how they turn something high cal into something really healthy and trust me they don’t just sell salads, they’ve got desserts too! So it’s not a punishment to eat at these places but rather a delight! Being a food blogger sounds all fancy and people are all like “OMG you’re so lucky, you get to eat all the food” but they forget what that food is doing to my waist! So today I thought of rustling up a really quick recipe of my favourite salad with Potatoes, Chickpeas and Spinach.

Potato and Chickpea Salad

Now the dressing is a mix of mayo, Tahini and hung curd so I won’t say it’s entirely healthy but it’s a great light salad that’s really creamy and delicious! The dressing is to die for and the flavours are pretty much Indian, so I’m sure you’ll find the ingredients in your kitchen. So gather your tools and get started!

RECIPE: Potato and Chickpea Salad

Serves: 2    Total Time: 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

For the salad

  • Boiled Chickpeas, 1 cup

For the dressing

  • Mayonnaise, 4-5 tablespoons

  • Cumin Powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2-3 tablespoons
