    Altered ingredient amounts. When roasting chickpeas you definitely do not need this much olive oil! Try just lightly greasing the baking tray instead. - 07 Aug 2008


    a nice snack, I added some chilli and garlic flakes. - 05 Nov 2009


    Altered ingredient amounts. If they're soft in the middle, you need to roast them about another 10 minutes (based on mine). I started with 20 min on 180 and then went another 15 min or so on 230 to get them nice and crunchy - they get small and nutty. They didn't burn at all. I used about 1TB oil and about a TB of curry powder and a few dashes of cayenne. - 07 Aug 2008
