salt to taste

Defrost sweet corn, heat 1/2 a tsp of olive oil and roast corn on medium flame till slightly burnt.
Blanch sprouted black chana in salted hot water and drain.
chop onions, tomato into small squares
chop capsicum into small squares, red and yellow capsisum could also be added to make the salad colourfull.
Mix all the veggies in a bowl and refrigerate for an hour or so.
whisk out olive oil, lemon juice chilli powder and salt in a small bowl and keep ready.
Just before serving, mix in the dressing into the veggies thoroughly and serve straight away.
