Preheat the oven to 100 C / Gas 1/4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
Combine the chickpea water, lemon juice, rose water and cream of tartar in a mixing bowl and beat the mixture for 10 to 30 minutes. Start beating on high speed and slowly adding icing sugar. Check your meringue from time to time – if you can take the bowl upside down and it didn’t collapse and you have stiff peaks it means your mixture is ready. Use a pastry bag or a spoon to place freeform shapes on to the prepared baking trays.
Bake in the preheated oven for 90 minutes to 2 hours. Rotate your trays half way through. Turn off the oven but leave your meringues inside to cool down. If you prefer a meringue that is crunchy, opt for more time.
Cream of tartar helps stabilize and gives more volume to your mixture. If you are looking for replacement go for 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Keep in cool and dry place. These should keep for a couple of weeks in an air-tight container.
