Homemade Garlic Roasted crunchy healthy Chickpeas

Warning!!-these are addictive and you can stop with only a bowl

These crispy roasted chickpeas deserve a post of their own.Making these was an afterthought to the pumpkin laksa that I have pinned on my pinterest board few days back. As is clear from my multiple warnings on various social media these are addictive and I enjoyed them more than the main dish.

For all you NRIs you don’t have to wait for relatives to get indian snacks. For all you dieters,you don’t have to consume weird soy based processed crisps. For all you serial snackers, these will never make you feel guilty! Chuck the ugly tasteless sprouts and eat these!

You can decide the flavours based on your palate.Roasting garlic along with the chickpeas gives it a very subtle flavour of garlic.I ate half of them without any salt straight from the oven while taking pictures and spiced the other half with peri peri spice mix.
