Yellow Peas Masala Chaat / White Peas Masala Gravy / White Peas Masala Gravy Chaat

Beach Sundal, Beach Pattani (Peas) gravy are very popular India. We love eating hot and steaming peas masala in the breezy air. I have seen how they serve, first in a bowl, they add broken samosa and then on top of it they add this masala gravy and garnish with fresh onions, coriander leaves etc. Such a mouthwatering chaat is nutrition rich too as we are using dried peas which are rich in dietary fiber and proteins.
