    To start making vegan chickpeas salad, you need to soak chickpeas overnight. Take four spoons of chickpeas, wash 2 - 3 times and soak it in water overnight.


    The following day again washes it. Once the chickpeas is adequately soaked, it increases nearly two times weight.


    So if you see in weighing scale, it shows 80 gm for soaked chickpeas, you need to take 80 gm chickpeas; if you are handling raw chickpeas, take 40 gm and soak it overnight.


    Now add water and turmeric powder to the chickpeas.


    Now add water and salt to the chickpeas


    Now, pressure cooks it until 2 to 3 whistles.


    Now separate the cooked chickpeas and water with the help of a filter.


    I use cucumber, onion, tomato, and capsicum to make this salad healthier.


    Now wash all the vegetables.


    Chop it in long slices.


    Take a pan; here I am using a steel pan. Steel pans are best as compared to nonstick pans. If you want to purchase a steel pan link is given above, please check.


    Add 1 cup makhana or foxnut to the pan.


    Roast it for 3 - 4 min in slow flame.


    Once makhana properly roasts, it becomes so crispy you can feel it when you press in between your fingers.


    Now take out roasted makhana to a cup.


    In the same pan, add ½ tsp oil and roast onions.


    Until it changes its colour, please add little water and cook onions if onions are sticking to the pan.


    Now I am adding capsicum also roasting it for 3 min.


    Take a big bowl to add roasted onion and capsicum to it.


    Now add chopped cucumber.


    Chopped tomato.


    Cooked chickpeas


    A handful of coriander leaves.


    Roasted foxnuts or makhana.


    Now, this is a dressing that enhances the taste of the salad.


    To make this dressing, I am taking one lemon juice. Please take lemon juice according to your taste.


    Now add 1/4th spoon black pepper powder.


    One small spoon of red chilli flakes.


    One little spoon of oregano seasoning.


    Add salt as per taste; I am using pink salt. If you want to purchase, the links are given above.


    Mix well; our dressing is ready.


    Mix well.


    And serve immediately. Otherwise, foxnut becomes soggy.
