Meal ideas using healthy roasted curry chickpeas with coconut flakes.
Do you need a time to munch on these healthy bites?
I don’t think so. they make a meal any time of the day, add a salad or a portion of meat if you want to have a complete meal.
If you really don’t have the time to soak the chickpeas overnight, have a few canned chickpeas in hand, I guarantee you’ll make use of them.
Careful with the garam masala……
I’m using a pinch of garam masala to season these chickpeas, please be careful and only add a really small amount, you want the spice mix to enhance the chickpea flavors and the coconut flakes.
Add too much and you’ll definitely taste a slight bitterness in the chickpeas.
Kitchen equipment and utensils used to make healthy oven-roasted curry chickpeas with coconut flakes.
You will need a bowl to mix the ingredients and a medium-sized baking pan to roast the chickpeas.
How many cups of chickpeas would I need for a single serve?
Even in small quantity, cooked or roasted, chickpeas can be quite filling.
These legumes come in 5oog packs which can be too much even for a family of five. before you even begin soaking the chickpeas, decide how much of the legumes you’ll need.
Depending on how much a person would actually eat per serving, I would suggest half to 1 cup per serving(the latter quantity if she or he is a big eater). although not accurate, the above estimate should give you an idea of how much chickpeas you’ll need to cook.
