Baked Spicy Chickpeas

Today's recipe is going to be a simple baked spicy chickpeas.We love to munch the store bought deep fried version.
The baked version make it healthy and guilt free and the taste is close to the deep fried version.The same way green peas, black eyed peas and soya beans can be baked.But if its over baked the chickpeas became hard.So keep watching after 30 minutes of baking and turn in between atleast 3-4 time to ensure even baking.Here I soaked the chickpeas then pressure cooked and baked it.If you want to make it in a scratch use the canned garbanzo beans.Lets move on to the recipe............................................
