Health Fix: Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

Sure, you can buy this as pre-packaged namkeen, but I like making it at home. Its easy, addictive, extremely healthy (only protein) and I can play around with the seasonings :)

What you need:
Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) - soaked overnight, or if you forget, like I often do, soaked in hot water for about 2 hours
Salt, Chilli powder, seasoning of your choice - I used Oregano and some Garlic powder
About 2 tbsp Olive Oil

Cook the chickpeas in a pressure cooker, with enough water to cover them, till they're fully cooked. Drain out, pat dry with a paper towel.
Mix in oil, and spices of your choice, to evenly coat them all. 
Spread on a baking tray and bake at a pretty high temperature, about 200 Celsius, till they start browning. Keep an eye on this, it burns pretty quickly!
