Crispy Chickpeas Recipe
First, the chickpeas. You have two options here – canned or dried. I prefer the convenient canned chickpeas as there’s no pre-cooking involved. With dried chickpeas, make sure you cook them before tossing in the spices.
One of the secret tips to getting the perfect crispiness is pat drying the chickpeas using paper towel or kitchen towel. This way, you can ensure that all the moisture is removed from the chickpeas.
The next step is tossing the chickpeas in your favorite seasoning. My spice mix includes ground cumin, paprika and red chili powder alongside a little garlic powder and a light drizzle of olive oil. However, feel free to use your favorite seasonings in this recipe like cajun, garam masala, chat masala, sumac, etc. And don’t forget the salt.
The final step of this crispy chickpeas recipe – bake. Cook in the oven until they are super crispy. And done. Delicious chickpeas for a quick snack, salads or soup topping. They also make a great addition to your grazing boards.
