I had a Canned box of Chickpeas at home but was lazy to make Chole ( That was the only thing I had tried making out of Chickpeas) .Although Chole is my favorite I wanted to try something new this time so thought of making a Chickpeas Raita which I had at a friends place.It is simple yet tasty and can be prepared in 5 minutes.
