I won't rate this because it just didn't work out for us. Not to our liking, though we really, REALLY wanted to like this. Thanks for the post anyway.

Yummy! I had to adjust the cooking time since I don't own a real oven; I use a large Hamilton Beach convection/toaster oven and I found that cooking for 35 minutes made them good and crunchy but 25-28 min is optimal for them to be softer. I used garlic powder and coriander, and lots of red cayenne. Plus, I used besan (chickpea flour) instead of cornflour, it really enhanced the chickpeas! New favorite now, thanks for sharing! :D

What a great snack, and the variations of spices are endless. My only complaint is it wasn't enough! :) I will be doubling this from now on! Made for Spring 2008 PAC.
