Chickpeas Watermelon Salad

Chickpeas Watermelon Salad is the perfect Morning Breakfast. Its very healthy and stomach filling dish.  While I was making it, I had a doubt " Does watermelon go well with chickpeas ?". Actually It does. The combination of chickpeas, watermelon and lemon juice was so great. My hubby likes it lot :) . I haven't add spicy flavor in this dish. If you want some, add few pinch of chili flakes in it.


  • Watermelon - 1 cup
  • Chickpeas - 1/2 cup
  • Purple onion - 2
  • Tomato - 1
  • Cilantro - 1/2 cup
  • Lemon - 1/2
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Water


1. Soak chickpeas in water for 4 hours or overnight and drain the water.

2. Cook chickpeas with salt and enough water in pressure cooker upto 3 whistle.

3. Remove it from the flame. Once the pressure settle down, open the lid and drain the water. Keep the chickpeas aside.
