Chef Jerry Traunfeld, inspired by a trip through India, flavored this creamy chickpea salad with aromatic herbs and Indian spices, among them mustard, cumin and fennel seeds.

  1. Two 15-ounce cans chickpeas—rinsed, drained and patted dry
  2. 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  3. 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  4. 3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
  5. 3/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
  6. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  7. 3/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  8. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  9. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  10. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  11. 1/4 cup chopped mint
  12. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Pour the chickpeas into a large bowl. In a small skillet, heat the peanut oil until shimmering. Add the mustard seeds, partially cover the skillet and cook over moderately high heat until the mustard seeds stop popping, about 1 minute. Add the cumin and fennel seeds and the crushed red pepper and cook until the mixture is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour the hot oil and spices over the chickpeas. Stir in the yogurt, lemon juice, sliced scallions, chopped cilantro and mint and salt. Serve the chickpea salad at room temperature.
