This is one of my favorite snacks, they are healthy, crunchy, easy to make. Does anyone require more reasons to fall in love with this one… oh ya you can play around with this recipe.
The oven roasted chana is like boiled chana dry, toss and roast. Yes, it is that simple!
Boiled chana: 1 cup
Olive oil: 2 spoons
Salt as required
Spices: Today, I have used peri peri mix that I picked it up from the store. You can use anything like mixed herbs and pepper combo, curry powder , jeera powder, garam masala, Sambar powder and the options are many more!
Method Of Preparation:
One important thing to follow while roasting chana in the oven is to not forget to pat them dry before tossing in the oil, salt and spices.
My favorite way to do this is to leave them between 2 kitchen towels for about 15 minutes, get your spices ready and pre heat the oven to 185.
Toss in the oil, salt , spices and make sure channa is well coated.
Spread them across a baking sheet and bake them at 185 degrees fahrenheit for 20 to 30 mins giving the tray a shake every 10 minutes.
Let them rest for about 10 minutes. This can be stored in an air tight container. tadaaaa!! a healthy snack is ready in a jiffy.
A perfect snack for munching while reading a book, watching movie or with chai.
