Hot Chilli Chickpeas in 5

Although I love cooking and creating lovely food in my little kitchen, its the last place I want to be on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Its that time of the week where I do not want to do anything, just laze on the couch (if that’s possible with an overactive 2 year old), watch some British television, chomp on some freshly made popcorn, or on some ready made shop bought tapas and just unwind or chill out!

However, if I do get requests for this particular snack (hubby loves it!! and requests do come in thick and very often :)) ….Im quite  happy to make it, as I can whip it up within 5 minutes….oh yes you heard me right 🙂  5 minutes from start to finish! No compromise on taste and flavour, it is a very good and healthy snack, wonderful accompaniment to drinks and best of all, so simple to make. All you need is a ready can of cooked chickpeas, some some basic ingredients and thats it!! 

If ever you have surprise guests and have nothing to serve them, pull this one out as a quick appetiser, and beam like a pro!!

I often tend to vary the spicing, sometimes I use plain Kashmiri chilli powder, other times I substitute it with the Mangalore Bafat powder or the Mangalore Bunt Chilli powder. You could substitute it Sambhar powder if you wish. Just play around with the flavours till you discover your thing.
