  • If some of the chickpeas are still not crunchy at the end of baking, simply bake them for longer. Make sure they don’t burn though!
  • Make sure you dry the chickpeas thoroughly to ensure maximum crunch.
  • Feel free to adjust the amount and ratio of seasonings according to your taste preference.
