May be many of you wonder by reading this name - Chickpeas and Mince Curry is a famous street food in Lahore. It is known with different names but where you go to eat it, you must wait in que. Actually it is a unique combination of mince kebab, chickpea and eggs. Once during my schooling I saw how the person making it on a vast griddle (tawa) and now when I started cooking I tried it. It was amazing in taste. So now I often make it especially when we have leftover chickpea curry. You can also use leftover chickpea curry in it. You will get a guaranteed taste. Serve it with naan and mint yogurt dip.
