Hi my dear readers, long time no see!
Wish everyone has a good day :)

Let me share with you this new recipe - Chickpeas salad with potatoes.

Common English name: Chickpeas, Garbanzo beans, Brown Chickpeas, Bengal-Gram
Skin colour : Brown

Serves : 1-2

  1. 3 potatoes

  2. 1 cup of chickpeas

  3. 1 tablespoon cooking oil

  4. 1 onion, finely sliced

  5. 1 teaspoon masala

  6. 2 tablespoon tamarind juice

  7. seasons to taste
Rinse and drain the chickpeas.
Placed chickpeas and washed potatoes into a cooking pot and add enough water to cover the main ingredients. Cover the lid slightly ajar and cook over a medium heat for about 30 minutes. Then, reduce the heat and let it simmer until both are tender. Drain and let cool before peeling off the potatoes skin.

Note: If necessary, add small amount of water during the boiling process.

Dear Moulmein Kitchen,
By seeing the picture of potato & lentils salad, I would like to comment you that's not lentils. It's called "Chickpea". Lentil is small & lightly red color.

Dear Nay Mya Mya Swe,

Thank you for correcting my mistake.
I was unsure of the name as it is smaller than the type of chickpea which i have usually seen.
It could be a smaller type of chickpea. Why didn't i think of it??...hmmmm!
Moreover, I failed to make an effort to find out the correct name :(
I will correct it.
Thanks a lot :)
