Black Eye Bean Chaat/ Lobhiya Chat

On weekdays, no matter how early you get up in the morning, preparing elaborate breakfasts is just out of question for me. I always prefer to make something that is quick, tasty and satisfying without compromising on the health quotient. Black eye bean chaat is thus one of the preferred breakfast dishes.

Not only as breakfast, this can be served as evening snack or as a side dish with any meal too. Just apt for every season, I am sure its going to make a place in your home too..:)

How do we proceed:
