 We need:
Ø  1 cup Garbanzo beans / Kabul channa (Soak 6-7 or overnight).
Ø  1 tbsp Oil
Ø  Garlic powder – as per ur taste( I love garlic flavor a lot so I added tht more)
Ø  Red chili powder - As per taste
Ø  Chaat masala as per taste
Ø  Salt - As per taste
Method:
*       Drain soaked chickpeas.
*       Pressure cook the chickpeas  for about 15 minutes or  until 4 whistles on sim till the peas r done (they must not be overcooked). Make sure the skins are not out as it has chances of bursting in the oil.
*       Drain them again and pat out excess water by  clean kitchen towel.
*       Preheat oven to 180 deg cel for 10 minutes
*       In a bowl add boiled chickpeas and mix it with salt,1/2 tbsp oil , garlic powder, chaat masala, chili powder and allow it to rest for ½ n hr.
*       In a baking pan pour 1/2 tbsp. oil
*       Now Arrange the peas  on the pan making sure no beans are on top of the other.
*       Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes at 200 deg. Cel.
*       Remove and let cool completely..
*       Now enjoy ur crunchy snack.
