I love fondling with those chickpeas that I bought from the Indian grocers but at NSK I found the big ones and did not hesitate to bring them home. Cooked chickpeas is a good snack by itself and the taste can be intensify by adding salt and spices. People like myself with diabetic, chickpea is definitely a great good to sort for, as it makes food taste much better. So I have some make and stashed in the refrigerator, when I am hungry I get to indulge them in my comfort.
Cooking chickpeas is not difficult, just need to soak the dried chickpeas with water for about half a day or overnight. Make sure the water is change regularly. I had mine soaked for a day. Once the chickpeas expand their sizes, you can cook them. I use my Philips pressure cooker, simple and easy to handle, just a touch of a button.
