Fried Chick Peas Recipe

Step 1

Soak the chick peas overnight in lots of water. Then bring to a boil, and simmer for 2 to 3 hours.

Step 2

Mix the onions and spices together in a small bowl. Using a non-stick pan, then fry in the oil until the onions are brown (5 to 10 minutes).

Step 3

Thoroughly mix the fried onion, cooked chick peas, lemon juice, parsley, and mint in a medium size bowl.

Step 4

On medium-high heat, fry everything until the chick peas start to soften (about 10 minutes). Cover, and set the heat on very low for 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 5

Serve hot or cold. Great for picnics!

** Variations **

Add one more diced onion. Use olive, sesame, or safflower oil instead of peanut.
