Hi what's the best post method to cooking chickpeas which gets the chickpease nice and dry. I know there an idea with a dish towel but not sure of the exact method. Or any other methods would be appreciated.
Thank you

What do you mean by dry?

There are recipes for roasted chickpeas which are seasoned and a bit crunchy and served as a snack.

However most of the recipes I am familiar with that incorporate chickpeas are moist recipes like a stew or a salad so the chickpeas themselves having a bit of residual moisture adhering to the exterior is irrelevant. If I use canned chickpeas I would just strain them in a colander and them dump them without wanting to dry them.

Perhaps if you post the recipe which utilizes "dry" chickpeas people can be more helpful

You mean roasting them so they get a hard coating? I do this a lot, and this is my favorite: https://food52.com/recipes/156.....kpeas

I was referring to cooking raw chickpeas but even if it's cooked it should be somewhat dry not soggy from the water its cooked it. Like I spill when it's done cooking but that's not enough... if you get what I mean

The only way to get them dry is to pan fry or roast them.

I do either in a pot on low or in the crockpot for the day. When it's soft I drain it in pasta drainer. Then I put a towel on my counter and pour hot chick peas on it. Towel absorbs extra water. I spread it on the towel and spice it. Salt, paprika, cayenne, black pepper (cumin if you like). I pick up the towel on one side and it sort of rolls that way and then the other way, so it gets coated.

Hi, sisters. I'm sure we're the only family who does it that way.

Nope, you're not my sister and we do it this way too.
