Chickpeas (white channa) 75g

Onion 25g
Yellow bell pepper 25g
Red bell pepper 25g

Preparation

Stage 1

First stage is the initial preparation of our ingredients. Soak chickpeas for at least 3 hours, prior to cooking. To a pressure cooker, add soaked chickpeas, water, ½ tsp salt and close it with its lid. Boil it until steam rushes out and then place the weight. Let it blow one whistle at high flame and 5 more whistles at low flame. Let the cooker cool down on its own. Once it is ready, open it and make sure it is fork tender. Now strain off the water and transfer it to a bowl and keep it aside.

Stage 2

To manage our time, let us prep the other ingredients alongside the cooking of chickpeas. First of all let us clean the broccoli and cut it into small pieces. Place a sauce pan with a cup of water on the burner and add the broccoli pieces into it. Let it boil for 3 minutes and strain off the water and keep the blanched broccoli aside.

Stage 3

Slice onion to small pieces, tomatoes and bell peppers into cubes. Chop coriander leaves. Keep it aside. Squeeze out lemon juice and keep it ready.

Stage 4

Take cooked chickpeas in a mixing bowl. To this add, blanched broccoli, sliced onion, chopped, red and yellow bell peppers and tomatoes.

Stage 5

To this add, salt and pepper. Toss the ingredients very well. Now add coriander leaves and lemon juice to the salad. Toss it once again to get a very nice yummy salad.
