SNACKS !!! Isn’t it a delicious word ….. the moment we say it, our mind starts a visual journey of all the yummy, salty, sweet, fried, spicy n endless combinations of snack we might have ever seen or eaten …… and most of the times we end up eating too much of it with an almost immediate giult trip ….. You know what I’m saying !So here’s a snack which is pretty healthy (low fat – high protein), easy to make, crunchy and can be stored for upto 2-3weeks in air tight containers.
Oven Roasted Chickpeas – Spicy n Savory
It even serves as a great option to carry along in small bags/ziplock. * Also, it’s a great way of utilizing extra cooked beans on hand
NOTE:I’m keeping them low in salt n spice, please add/reduce flavouring as per choice.
