  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Stir together the chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, brown sugar, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, garam masala, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt in a mixing bowl. Spread the chickpea mixture in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven until the chickpeas are dark brown in spots, crisp, and have shrunk quite a bit, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Cool to room temperature before serving.

These are yummy if you like the somewhat sweet, Indian flavor - which I DO! However, describing the texture as "crispy" is a bit misleading. They are a TAD crispy on the outside and normal bea...

The spice flavor was very good, but I didn't like the texture. They weren't like a crunchy snack . . more of just a dry mealy (?) kind of thing. I ended up trying to pan fry them after the roa...
