Chaat salad

Made this yesterday as part of a friend's babyshower potluck lunch.

3 cups sprouted & boiled mung beans
1 can garbanzo beans - drained
1 English cucumber - diced
2 tomatoes - chopped
1/2 can baby beets - chopped
1/2 medium onion - chopped
About 1 cup shredded carrots
3 green chillies
Handful of roasted, lightly salted peanuts
1 tsp salt or to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp chaat masala
Cilantro for garnishing

I boiled the sprouted mung beans in the pressure cooker for 1 whistle, then turned the heat off & left the cooker to cool.
The chillies can be deseeded for lesser heat.
Mix all the ingredients. Chill for 1 hr.
You can add boiled cubed potatoes too and avoid/change proportion of any of the veggies/beans. No hard & fast rules, but does turn out yummy any way & is healthy to boot!
