Seasoning and then roasting the chickpeas makes them tasty and crunchy. Quite satisfying. You can also call them cece beans, Egyptian peas, Bengal gram or garbanzo beans.  If you don’t like the seasoning leave out the ingredients you don’t like. At the bottom of the post is an alternate seasoning suggestion. Or invent your own seasoning.

Ingredients for seasoning

  • 2 TBSP coriander seeds
  • 1 TBSP cumin seeds
  • 1 TBSP fenugreek seeds
  • 1 TBSP ground ginger
  • 1 TBSP ground tumeric
  • 1 TBSP ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 TBSP dried sage leaves.

Put all the ingredients in a grinder and grind them thorughly. Put in a glass container and use within a month. I always make 1/2 of a new recipe so do that if you prefer.

Ingredients for roasted Chickpeas

  • 3 cups of drained chickpeas, preferably not jarred or canned ones
  • 1//2 TBSP of above seasoning

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Mix the chickpeas with tthe seasoning and salt.
  3. Spread out the chickpeas in a single layer on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake until crunchy, about 50 minutes.

Alternate seasoning.
