Microwave Roasted Chickpeas

Are you searching for a guilt free,quick,spicy and an easy breezy snacks to munch, you should definitely give a try to this super tempting roasted chickpeas..I simply prepared this highly addictive roasted chickpeas by using already cooked chickpeas, spiced up with kashmiri chilly powder, pepper powder,cumin powder,crushed garlic;fennel seed powder along with salt and a tablespoon of oil..Actually you can make the same crispy chickpeas by deepfrying too, as am becoming health nut am trying to skip deepfrying and finding out some alternative way of cooking to make my favourite deepfried snacks as this way..They turned out super crispy and i couldnt stop munching them..A fabulous snacks to enjoy without any guilt..


1cup Cooked chickpeas
1/4tsp Kashmiri red chilly powder
1/4tsp Fennel seeds powder
1/4tsp Paprika powder
1no Crushed garlic pods
1/2tsp Cumin powder
1/4tsp Pepper powder
Salt
1tbsp Oil

Mix everything well together and keep aside for half an hour...arrange as a single layer the spiced chickpeas in a microwave safe plate and cook in high power for 12-15minutes(stir in between),dont cook for a long they may turn hard, let them sit for few minutes before arranging in an air tightened box, continue the same process with the remaining spiced chickpeas..

Enjoy this crunchy munchy chickpeas with a cup of tea..
