Roasted spiced chole – Perfect snack time treat
Chole aka garbanzo beans are very much commonly used in Indian cooking. You can make chole curry, salad, chaat and what not! But this is first time I have tried roasting chole and I loved it. It’s like healthy munch on snack to me. Crunchy and light!
This recipe is very versatile. You can pick whatever seasonings you want to. Sweet, savory, salty, spicy whatever you wish for. Here I have used the combination of smoked paprika and roasted cumin powder with bit of garlicky hint…and it’s yummm! Just make sure not to put too much salt otherwise you won’t enjoy it.
And if you do not like canned beans then you can soak and boil your beans from scratch. Just soak beans overnight or at least for 8 hours and then pressure cook it for about 12-15 minutes (5-6 whistles) on high heat. Once cooked, let it cool down and carry on with roasting procedure.
Once roasted let it cool down and garnish with some cilantro and aahh drizzle some lemon/lime juice…and enjoy the treat.
Here I have used canned organic garbanzo beans and I know sometimes canned products do not taste great. But that is why I recommend using organic BPA free canned products.
Excellent ! Low calorie,low carb and very tasty ! Why snack on potato chips when this is so easy up make ? I’m going to try this out very soon. 🙂
Yummm!! U think we store these right after roasting it n use later for snacking??
I think it should be fine in an airtight container on counter top for couple of days because it will be dry when you roast it. But if you want to store for longer time then I will suggest to store in refrigerator!
You have given me a brilliant idea. Thanks so much. Love the last picture with the recipe printed.
Anita, thank you berry much 🙂
I love roasted snacks! This is one of my fav but i always boil the dried ones and then make it.

They are addictive…believe me 🙂 I kept munching on and on and on..hehe 🙂
Grishma, these look fabulous. I have never had roasted garbanzos and will definitely try this recipe. A new way to eat garbanzos!

Can’t agree more! Why to put extra oil in your body when you can manage with a little, right? And thank you 🙂
Oh these look like such a satisfying crunchy snack. I cannot wait to try! Love the photos too.
Thank you Denise 🙂 If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
I absolutely love chickpeas! Does anyone know the best way to store these once they’re roasted? Should they go in the fridge? Or are they dried out enough to seal up in a bag and keep at room temperature?
These photos are gorgeous, by the way!
Christina, as I mentioned in previous comment, I think it should be fine in an airtight container on counter top for couple of days because it will be dry when you roast it. But if you want to store for longer time then I will suggest to store in refrigerator!
And also I am glad you liked the clicks 🙂 Appreciate it.
I have never before roasted garbanzo beans but I love the look of those! I hope you can make it for the Donna Hay challenge this month too! 😉
