Ruby spotted broken wheat chick pea salad

Ruby spotted broken wheat chick pea salad

1/2 cup broken wheat (coarse in texture)
1/2 cup chick peas (canned or freshly boiled, drained)
1 tbsp heaped pomegranate seeds
1/2 tbsp mint leaves, torn
1 tsp fresh cilantro or coriander, finely chopped (parsley can also be added)
1 tbsp cucumber, diced in small pieces
1 tbsp carrot, shredded
1 pinch black pepper, coarsely ground
1 pinch red chilli powder
2 pinch chaat masala (optional) [available at Indian grocery stores]
2 tsp lemon juice (+/- as per your taste)
Salt to taste

step 1
Transfer 1/2 cup broken wheat in a bowl and add 350 ml boiling water over it.
Let it soak for 30-35 minutes
Drain and squeeze out excess water from broken wheat

step 2
Transfer to a mixing bowl and add rest of the ingredients except pomegranate
Mix them well and sprinkle with pomegranate before serving.

step 3
Note: The addition of chaat masala peps up the taste of the salad and I would highly recommend it.
