Recipe Notes
  • Jains or others who don’t eat root vegetables, can cook without using beetroot.
  • You may reserve this healthy drained water after boiling the chana and use it either to cook rice, add to any gravy or soup or you may feed a little quantity to toddler or infant.
  • Adjust salt as per your taste.
  • If servings to kids, adjust chili as per their tolerance.
  • You may add any other vegetables also, easily available to you.
  • You may also shallow fry them.
  • For better results, mix chopped vegetables with boiled chana, while it is hot. It will help to reduce the rawness of vegetables itself.
