Notes

  • (1) You can use ½ lb (225 gram) dried chickpeas. Soak dried chickpeas overnight in cold water. Drain chickpeas, place in a pot, top with 2 inches of water. Boil over medium heat, then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 hour until soft and the beans are starting to split. Drain and set aside. The boiled chickpeas are now ready to use.
