I got this from a Nigella cookbook. The general method for preparing the chickpeas is fantastic. They come out so creamy and delicious. The seasoning for this is wonderful. Feel free to change it up with different seasonings. I use one standard Goya bag of dried chickpeas for this. ETA - the original recipe says to cook the chickpeas for 1 1/2 hours. For me, with the fresh chickpeas I get in a store with very high turnover I aonly cook them for 25 minutes to 1/2 hour. Please take this into consideration when making this.
