Chickpea Avocado Salad

As a Malayalee, I always stick to having proper sumptuous breakfast like puttu, appam, pathiri, dosa, idli etc. I don't want to go with western style breakfast of toast and corn flakes. That would definitely make me a lazy bump. Once in a while for a change, that's okay. No, I can't follow that on a daily basis. My little one is so much fond of puttu and upma. It's been a trend nowadays that she decides the breakfast menu. Well, as long as she doesn't take control of the lunch and dinner; then I would be in trouble.

While thinking on what to cook for lunch, I didn't want to cook rice and curry. Actually speaking we got bit bored with rice. Have been making a bit different recently with Korean grilled chicken, egg biriyani..
And thought lets go for some healthy salad. Luckily did have some chickpeas, avocados .. its easy peasy.. 


Chickpea - ½ cup, soaked overnight
Avocado - ½, roughly chopped
Red onions - 1 small, finely chopped
Tomato - 1, finely chopped
Parmesan cheese - handful
Extra Virgin Olive oil - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - to garnish
Lemon juice - just a squueze

How to:
  • Pressure cook the soaked chickpeas with salt and water
  • In a bowl, mix the cooked chickpeas, chopped avocados, red onions, tomato. Garnish with coriander leaves, parmesan cheese, extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Add salt and black pepper powder to your taste
  • Toss well and dive in to yummy salad
