Peanuts and Chickpeas Salad

Our body needs protiens daily to function healthily. The protien need is more for pregnant ladies, for teenagers as well as growing children. We should try including proteins in a diet in one way or the other,

Today I made this delicious salad with peanuts and chickpeas to meet our todays protein quota. This salad tastes yummy and peanuts add that extra crunch to the salad . This salad goes well with rice or roti and a spicy gravy vegetable.

If on a diet make a meal of just this salad and some vegetable soup.
