Crunchy Chickpea Munchies...

From a well stacked cupboard of ready-eats, we have now successfully moved on to an almost bare one! Yaaaaaaay!!... - a part of trying to get rid of meaningless chomping while glued to the idiot box.. which thankfully, is not more than an hour everyday ;) But that one hour did contribute to the most calorie build up esp. with the oreos, bourbons & the dark fantasy.. ummmm!!
Was browsing through Good Housekeeping when i came across a recipe for some baked munchies... tried them & we did finish them off in one go.. ;) was waaaay healthier than any packaged goody & addictive too!! :)
You need:
Chickpeas - 400gm 
Oil - 2tbsp (any vegetable oil will do)
AP flour (maida) - 1tbsp
Corriander powder - 1tsp
salt & chilly powder to taste

How to:
Preheat the oven to 220deg C. Mix the peas with all the other ingredients except the flour. Now toss the seasoned peas with flour to coat and transfer onto a slightly greased baking tray ensuring that you have a single layer of peas (not piled on one another). Roast till golden & crisp(about 30-40min) stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Makes about a cup of guilt-free munch. ;)
While boiling the peas, add in two whole green chillies & season with enough salt - the munchies taste better.
