Crispy baked Chickpeas | Oven Roasted Chickpeas | Healthy Snack

Thank you all for the comments on my 500th(previous) post,friends.Each one of us are in search of quick recipes yet healthy ones too.One such quick n simple healthy snack is crispy baked chick peas or oven roasted chick peas.This recipe uses very less oil and these can be served as a chat pata snack.My family loves garbanzo beans /chick peas and so this recipe was easier to sneak in.Also,this can be a much more easier snack if you already have some boiled chick peas in hand as I invariably have whenever I soak for making chana masala or use canned garbanzo beans.A really tasty protein  rich snack and love the outer crunchy skin with soft inside.This is something I love to munch on a rainy day watching rains,Do you love watching rains??


Ingredients
garbanzo beans/chickpeas/vella kadala/kabuli chana 2 cups (15 oz can)
extra virgin olive oil 1/4cup
cumin powder 1 1/4 tsp
fennel powder/ground toasted fennel seeds  1.5 tsp
chilli powder /paprika 1/2 tsp
chat masala a generous pinch
garlic powder 1/2 tsp (optional)
salt to taste


Method
  • Drain the water if using canned beans or cooked chana/chick peas.Pat dry on a kitchen towel.
  • Line a tray with aluminium foil to prevent soiling the tray.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F.Toss chickpeas in a bowl with oil and spice powders to coat. Season with salt and transfer to a lined rimmed baking sheet.Mix well and arrange in a single layer.

- Bake and roast, stirring halfway through cooking, until crispy, 25–30 minutes.(Mine took 25 minutes)
- Transfer to a bowl and enjoy with squeezed lime /lemon.Enjoy !!
