  • Shuli Madmone

(Serves 2-4, depending on appetite and how many other snacks you serve)


1 cup freshly cooked or frozen garbanzo beans, a.k.a. chickpeas (a drained can will do)
2 tsp. mild-flavored olive oil
2 tsp. Whole Spice Chaat Masala blend


In a nonstick pan over medium heat, toss the beans for a few minutes until they are hot and starting to develop small brown marks.
Turn off the heat and add the olive oil.
Toss for one minute, add the chaat masala blend, toss for 30 seconds more and serve.


Don’t forget the beer! (Or wine, of course.)


Note: You can also add chaat masala while toasting nuts — almonds in particular — or roasting potatoes and other vegetables.
