black chickpea salad | kala chana chaat


Every summer vacation, I used to join the summer training camp at the stadium near my home. Kids were provided coaching on various sports of their choices. Yes, this was back when I was at school. Although it was fun, it was tiring as well, 2 hours of gruelling exercise in the morning and afternoon. But that did not lower my spirit to roam and play around with friends during the day :)

Now I realize the energy source which kept me on my toes the whole day. Every morning and afternoon after exercise at the stadium, we were provided with boiled black chickpea, jaggery and one boiled egg. This combo was the powerhouse which kept me on my toes all day, running, playing, cycling, dancing and what not.

Wait !!! this was not the only thing I ate during the entire day. I also gobbled at my mom made breakfast and lunch as well :) But the chickpea-jaggery-egg combo helped me withstand the strain of the sessions which I went through at the training. If you are a fitness freak, you will give me a high five on that.
