Roasted Chickpeas - Spicy Version / Oven Roasted

I always love to munch something on... that too, weekend evenings... I book marked this post on oven roasted chickpeas by our lovely blogger friend Suma @ Veggie Platter long ago. But now only got the perfect time to prepare it. Its really very tasty and crunchy. I wanted a extra bit spiciness and tangy taste in it and so added tikka masala too. Thank you Suma, for sharing the wonderful recipe. 


  • Chickpeas / Konda kadalai - 1 cup
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Olive oil - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Tikka masala - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch (optional)

  • Soak Chickpeas overnight.
  • Add little salt (a pinch) and Pressure cook it for 3 to 4 whistles.
  • When it is cooked, drain the water or store it and it can be used to prepare rasam.
  • Take a baking tray and cover with aluminium foil. 
  • Now spread the cooked chickpeas.
  • Add the chilli powder, tikka masala, turmeric powder, salt and mix well.
  • Now either spray the oil over the chickpeas, or add oil and mix thoroughly.
  • Keep the oven in 150 deg C, and place the tray in the first rack. 
  • After 15 min, take out the tray and give a stir. After that, for each 10 min, take out the tray and give a stir. 
  • Repeat the process, till the chickpeas turns into light brown colour. 
  • Take out, cool it and roasted chickpeas is ready to munch on or store in a air tight container.

  • Any cooking oil can be used.
  • Turmeric is optional.
  • I added, tikka masala, for extra spiciness and tangy taste. It is purely optional. Original recipe, does not have it.

Hi... The chickpeas was crispy as I kept stirring for each and every 5 minutes... And stayed food for 2 days as I stored in air tight container and within 2 days all finished.

I think if we do in larger quantity, and if crispness reduces, we can bake for another 4 or 5 min to make it crispier again. This is just a suggestion as I have done my chickpeas in less quantity. next time i will try with large quantity.


You yum, my favourite snack! Food event and giveaway at mt blog:
