It's the spice blend here that's different to other recipes. A great low-carb snack. (Australian measurements used)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons ground coriander
- black pepper, freshly ground
- 4 cups chickpeas, drained (either canned or cooked)
- Preheat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F).
- Heat oil in a small frying pan. Add spices and pepper to taste, and cook, stirring for 2 minutes.
- Put chickpeas into a bowl and then pour the spice mix over them. Toss to combine. Spread chickpeas over the base of a shallow ovenproof dish (or lined tray) and bake for about 1 hour (or until crunchy).
- Remove from oven and cool. Store in an airtight container.
I had made spiced roasted chickpeas before, but didn't save the recipe, which I loved. I thought this might have been it, but it most definitely is not. The spice mixture did next to nothing to flavor the beans, perhaps because much of it fell off during the roasting process which, after an hour and 20 minutes, hadn't crisped the beans. I was really disappointed with this recipe and I'll keep searching for the fabulous one I used before. I think the key is to use a bit more oil, so the spices stick to the beans and the beans faux fry.
made these tonight with all ingredients the only thing i didnt do was cook the spices in the frypan i just added everything into a bowl with my drained chickpeas and popped them in the oven on a lined tray and let them babies cook at 180 for an hour, half way through i moved them about so they could get crunchy all over, after they cooked and cooled i munched into them, i couldnt really taste the spices so next time i might make this by just cooking the chickpeas then mix in the spices and oil - other then that the taste of the roasted chickpeas are great for me to keep coming back
Hello Mischka, these are really HOT! ;) However, they are also a great ice breaker at any party. We had a cocktail party for some Drs and we served them ~ need I say they got a reaction, which is what one longs for. After the first taste they are really good! Some of the guests, who don't like spice, tried them and liked them. The great thing is that they are baked and not fried. Thank you for posting, Manami :)
