Indian Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Indian Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Chana masala is a classic savory chickpea dish in Indian cuisine, with a hearty, creamy texture and zesty flavor kick. But, this recipe turns traditional chana masala into a light, crispy, satisfying snack—with the same zesty zing! Munch on these Indian-spiced chickpeas for a nutritious, protein packed snack that you can feel good about. And feel free to change up the spices however you like. I recommend adding cayenne for a kick of heat! These also make a great fuel-filled topping for salads and Buddha bowls!
