GRAM BOUILLI (MAURITIAN SNACK)

Today I am sharing a delicious snack recipe from Mauritius called Gram Bouilli. It is Vegan and Gluten free too. It is perfect for snack time as it is protein rich too. Mauritian cooking is very similar to our Indian Cuisine. Black chickpeas are also known as kala channa in Hindi. It is a powerhouse of nutrients. I love the black chickpea sundal.
