Chickpeas(dry) - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Tumeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 tsp

Soak the beans overnight. Pressure cook until they are soft but not mushy.
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Drain the water and blot chickpeas with a paper towel to remove the moisture.
In a bowl, toss chickpeas with oil, salt, red chilli, turmeric. Make sure it is evenly coated.
Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with oil.
Spread the chickpeas on the sheet and place it in the oven to bake.
After 15 minutes, take out and toss around. Spread some lemon juice over it.
Continue to bake for another 10 minutes.
During the last 5 minutes keep a close watch so that they do not get burned.
Take it out of the oven and allow cooling. After cooling it gets a good amount of crunch.
