Ingredients:
Kabuli Chana / Chick Peas - 2 cups boiled or 1 can
Tomato sauce - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt and oil as per taste

Steps:
1. Heat little oil in a pan, add the chickpeas and saute for a minute.
2. Add tomato sauce, chilly powder and salt. Saute for 2 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and garnish with lemon juice and onions.

You can add more spices as per your palate to enhance the flavour. I also added Buffalo sauce to this, it tasted yum...
Have it as a tea time snack. Its good during the monsoon and winters.

Health Quotient:
Chick peas/Garbanzos give you energy to burn while stabilizing blood sugar. In addition to its beneficial effects on the digestive system and the heart, soluble fiber helps stabilize blood sugar levels. If you have insulin resistance, hypoglycemia or diabetes, beans like garbanzos can really help you balance blood sugar levels while providing steady, slow-burning energy. Studies of high fiber diets and blood sugar levels have shown the dramatic benefits provided by these high fiber foods. To know more about the benefits and storage of these, click here.
