This is a very versatile recipe. You can adjust or skip or add the ingredients as per you liking and taste. So don’t go for exact measurements. If you like more spicy, add more chilli powder or add green chilies. Like it more tangy, add more lemon juice. Don’t like potatoes in chaat, skip it. Like more tomatoes, add little extra. Don’t like kala chana, use other beans like black beans or white garzbano beans/ chole.

How to make Kala chana salad on Canapes
Soak and boil kale chane with salt beforehand.
Chop boiled potatoes, tomatoes, cucumber and onion. Sprinkle chat masala and jeera powder.
Now assemble canapes/monitas. Here I have used readymade canapes, easily available in the market. Or else you can bake monitas at home in an OTG.
For assembling of monitas/canapes, in the bottom put boiled kale chane. Top it with potato, tomato, cucumber, marsala peanuts and murmure. Sprinkle some chaat masala over it. Add chopped dhania pudina leaves.
Now drizzle dhania pudina chutney over it. Pour imli ki chutney. Garnish with sev. Put some coriander leaves,tomato pieces and pomegranate over it to decorate.
Enjoy your healthy snacky chaat with hot cup of cofee or Tea.
Green chutney and imli khajoor chutney can be made the before day itself. Or you can use store bought too.
Adding chaat masala and red chilli powder is according to your own taste.
You can drizzle sweetned curds over the chaat and then pour chutneys over it.
Fill the canapes only at the time of serving.
