We usually associate chaat with unhealthy fried foods or ones that have been cooked using loads of oil. Sprouts chaat is a healthy variation which has all the flavour and none of the calories we relate chaat with. Sprouts provide plenty of protein, vitamin c and iron to your diet and the protein content is further enhanced by the addition of steamed gram flour dumplings.
