Chickpeas Snack For Nibbling

There is nothing like sitting down for an evening drink with these chickpeas by one's side. Since they come out of can, no hard work is involved. You can use organic canned chickpeas , but any kind will do. If you have access to an Indian grocer , do sprinkle the chickpeas with some chaat masala at the end. It gives them an extra spiciness. But this is not essential. These are best eaten the day are made.
Serves 4 with drinks
