Chickpeas (chholey) are an important source of nutrition. They’re rich in minerals, fibre and protein. Here are some reasons why chickpeas should be a part of your diet:

They keep the stomach fuller for long, hence controlling appetite and weight gain.
They reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and certain cancers.
They have almost twice the amount of protein as compared to cereals.
They’re a rich source of molybdenum, a must for healthy teeth and bones.
