South Indian Chickpea Salad

Tarama 2

"The State of Tamil Nadu in South India is the origin for Madras Curry, versatile salads, and stir-fry. Of course, locally they are known by different names. A twist on a traditional salad, my chickpea salad can be made as an appetizer or a healthy snack with tea."
