ROASTED CHICKPEAS | SPICY ROASTED CHICKPEAS

Chickpeas or channa generally we make Sundal , Channa masala or Channa puloa but this roasted chickpeas i tried  a month back when i have some visitors for tea time snack and they already told me that they are coming just for a coffee. But i just tried this Roasted chickpeas with the canned Chickpeas. I added the Indian spices like red chilli powder, Tandoori masala ,  little garam masala and jeera powder. It tasted good and my friends too loved this with coffee.
