  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo
  • 2 teaspoons dill pickle juice/brine
  • 1 tsp dijon or yellow mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black salt (kala namak) - optional, but makes it taste egg-y
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Mash chickpeas by hand or in a food processor. Add to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients and combine. Add salt and pepper if desired.


* If you don't have dill pickle juice on hand, you can substitute with 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice and pint of dried dill. ** Yellow mustard is fine for this recipe. *** Black salt gives this dish an egg flavor. It is available at most Indian grocery stores or online.
