Chana Chor Garam cooked chickpeas that are flattened, fried and seasoned is an all-time favourite street food in India. While the roadside vendor would jazz it up with onions, tomatoes and a dash of spice powders, here were have created a fusion snack by topping the Chana Chor Garam with popular international dips and sauces like guacamole, tomato salsa and nacho sauce. A garnish of spring onions matches the exotic taste and texture of this dish making it all the more exciting to munch on. You can make the guacamole and uncooked salsa beforehand and store it in the fridge, but the nacho sauce must be made just before mixing because it thickens very fast. Once the nacho sauce is ready, assemble the Chana Chor Garam Nachos and serve it immediately.
