Boiled bean sprouts
Rings of onion
Lime or lemon

You need to make sure that the chickpea powder do not gather at one place and spread everywhere evenly. If you are a fun of hot meal, you may add some chili powder in the salad. In order to make the salad more rich, you may add boiled bean sprout, shredded cabbage, some coriander leaves, and rings of onions. At the end, squeeze some lime juice on top, and mix it nice and well. Normally, people top nan gyi thoke with boiled egg.
