C3- Crispy Chilli Chickpea

Cooking vegetarian items is tough especially for us who love to eat meat. In my case though I can go without meat for a week or two maximum but instead I require onion and garlic to bless my food. Here in India Vegetarianism are of 2types
  1. You are a complete vegan with a strict no consumption of meat, egg, fish, onion or garlic in your stomach doors.
  2. You are a semi vegan(as i call) where you get a narrow escape by allowing yourself to consume food made by adding onion and garlic.
Though I am a complete non vegetarian sometimes due to some auspicious celebrations and ceremonies I too have to compromise myself with the Class 2.
This recipe is one of the best tasting vegan recipes that I have tried till date. It has a crispy, tangy, and smooth texture inside your mouth when you taste it. The best part being you can enjoy this recipe with rice, roti or just as an evening snack.
