That morning, I asked Mom whether she'd cook some for me ... and of course she would. ;P She loved them too. So we went straight to the grocery shop to buy some. Chickpeas are sold at RM8.00 per kg now.
Mom shook her head in disapproval. She said that the price had escalated so much! Anyway, she bought half a kilogramme to cook that day.
Cooked chickpeas can be used as a cooking ingredient. But I'd just eat them like that as snacks.
Mom pressure-cooked the chickpeas with just a little salt. Then they were ready to eat. I loved the distinctive nutty and powdery taste of the peas! Once I started eating, it was difficult to stop. It was sure addictive. And filling too. A handful of these chickpeas would keep me full for a long time.
Hadn't eaten these for a while ... love them. Yums.
