Each time I see a new recipe and I have not eaten before, I will want to try it out and see for myself if it is that good as I imagined it to be. And true enough, it was fantastic ! Who would think a simple stir fry chickpeas with home grown mint leaves could taste so heavenly. A combination of flavors...garlicky spicy and minty just burst in your mouth as you take a mouthful of these chickpeas. I would recommend you to try this recipe if you are a fan of chickpeas and mint leaves. Simple to prepare and taste so good. Very addictive. You can serve this as a side dish or appetizer.
The mint in my small space called my garden are growing profusely and since I can make my own cooked chickpeas in just less than 30 mins with the Philips Pressure Cooker , making this dish is easy :) If you don't have a PPC...you can buy the ready cooked chickpeas from the kacang putih stall. Don't wait try it out and I know you will love this addictive dish :p
