    Evamyth's Note:

    I found this in "The New Glucose Revolution", a book about eating low-GI. This recipe is different because it starts with dried chickpeas, not canned. They can be spiced with any combination of spices you enjoy. Prep time does not include the overnight soak.

      These were just okay. I can't say they were bad, but they weren't really good either. I was hoping to have these as a good healthy snack but after they had been around for about week and it was clear we weren't going to eat them as is I ended up tossing them in a stir-fry meal to use them up.

      I enjoyed making and eating these, and I will definitely make them again. I used turmeric and salt to season them. They are also very economical to make, and are very nutritious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      I wasn't sure how to rate this. My DH and I really didn't like these. But they weren't BAD. I thought they were too gritty. My kids REALLY like these a lot. So, I will make these again for my kids. (Or teach them how to make these.) So, being a healthy snack and pretty easy to make and my kids like, it does deserve 4 stars. I'm glad I tried this recipe. Thanks for sharing! :)
