  • ​1 cup garbanzo beans (soaked overnight)  (if you don’t have time use 2 15oz cans, rinse thoroughly and drain all that sticky gunk)
  • ​Olive oil  2 tbsp
  • ​​Cayenne pepper 1 tsp
  • ​​Chili flakes 1 tsp
  • ​​Black pepper powder 1 tsp
  • ​​Cumin powder 1 tsp
  • ​Coriander powder 1tsp
  • ​Garam masala powder 1tsp
  • ​​Sea salt (to taste)


  • 1
    ​If starting with dried/soaked garbanzo beans, then cook them on HIGH in a pressure cooker with plenty of water until tender, about 10-12 minutes. (if cooking in a saucepan, cook over medium-high heat with plenty of water for about 30 minutes) . Cool and drain the water. (Skip step 1 if using canned garbanzo beans. Make sure canned beans are thoroughly rinsed and drained to get rid of the yucky gunk)
