Chickpea Salad for Weight Gainers

Chickpeas are very rich in calories. It is said that 100 grams of chickpeas contain approximately 364 calories. This is our special recipe which we prepare during Ramadan Days. It tastes yummy and it is very easy to prepare once you have the cooked chickpeas. You can also use the canned chickpeas which we usually use for preparing hummus.

I am planning to have it every other day.

Cooked Chickpeas or black chickpeas- 1 cup
Onion finely chopped-1 small
Tomato finely chopped-1 small
Green chilly chopped-2 small or adjust as per your taste
Lime juice- as required
Oil-1 tbsp
Mustard seeds
Take a bowl and add the chickpeas, onion, tomato, chilies, lime juice and salt and give that a good mix. Now, take a tablespoon of oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Add this to the salad and give a mix. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.


  • White chickpeas have more calories than the black ones. You can use the one you prefer.
  • If you prefer you can remove the seeds of tomato before chopping them
  • You can use olive oil or sunflower oil.
