    FloridaNative's Note:

    Found this in our local newspaper, the Orlando Sentinel July 25, 2012 - they ran a special section on Vegan Indian cooking. In "Vegan Indian Cooking" by Anupy Singla, she recommends cooking a large batch of chickpeans in a slow cooker, using one-half for this recipe and freezing the remainder for later use. If you do not want to make your own masala, experiment with commercial masala spice blends. Serve as a snack, in salads instead of croutons or in soups. Posted for ZWT8.

    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Drain the chickpeas in a large colander to get rid of as much moisture as possible, 15 minutes. If using canned, rinse first then drain.
    2. 2
      Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl, coating the chickpeas well.
    3. 3
      Arrange the seasoned chickpeas in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
    4. 4
      Bake 15 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven; mix gently so the chickpeas cook evenly. Return to oven and bake 15 minutes more.
    5. 5
      Cool 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the additional red chili powder if you like.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      Singla says soaking the chickpeas first isn't necessary. They will cook up just as soft as if they were presoaked. Don't have a slow cooker? Use a heavy pot, such as a Dutch oven, reduce the amount of water by 1/2 to 1 cup, use a very low flame and keep a careful eye that the chickpeas don't burn.
    8. 8
      Pick over and rinse 3 cups (about 18 ounces) whole, dried chickpeas.
    9. 9
      Place in a 3 1/2-quart capacity slow cooker with 5 cups water.
    10. 10
      Cook on high 4 hours.
    11. 11
      Rinse the beans with cold water to stop the cooking process; drain excess liquid.
    12. 12
      Store in the refrigerator up to 1 week or the freezer up to 3 months. Makes 7 cups.

      What a delicious snack. I used canned chickpeas and they became lovely, crunchy and mildly spicy. Thanks FN. Made for ZWT8
