Few Tips Before We Begin
I baked a total of 18 minutes. This time varies depending on the air fryer. So please keep an eye on the mixture after 13-14 minutes.
If you want extra crispy chickpeas, bake for additional 2-4 minutes
Note it can get burnt quickly.
If you are using fresh chickpeas ( Not using can chickpeas) I recommend boiling them first as you would normally do. Drain the excess water. Follow the same steps.
Storing - You can store these in a zip lock bag or an airtight bag. Place a paper towel inside the bag to catch any moisture.
Tip- Keep the chickpea skins for extra crispiness
1 Can Chickpea/ Garbanzo beans - 15.5 oz
Olive Oil Spray
1/4 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Chili Powder
1/2 Tsp Cumin Powder
2 Tsp Sugar
Open the can. Drain all the water inside.
Place all the chickpeas in a colander. Run through a wash.
Drain all the access water
Place chickpeas in the Air Fryer tray (basket). Spread evenly. Set temperature to 390 degrees Fahrenheit. ( You don't want to pre-heat the fryer)
Close the air fryer basket, Set timer for 18 minutes. After 5 minutes of air-frying, open the air fryer basket. Your chickpeas will be dry.
Now spray once with olive oil. Shake the basket so every piece can get glazed with oil. Now start the fryer.
Hereinafter, every five minutes, open the air fryer and shake the container ( Toss the chickpeas) So the chickpeas will crisp up evenly
Meanwhile, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. You can add any flavor you want.
For a sweet option, you can use Cinnamon & Sugar. Use the spices in the ingredients for a sweet & spicy flavor.
At the 5 minutes mark ( total temperature of 13 minutes) open the fryer.
Dump all the chickpeas into a bowl. Spray a small amount of oil. Sprinkle the prepared seasoning and give it a toss.
Spread the chickpeas evenly back in the air-fryer tray, and continue air frying for the remaining 5 minutes. ( I sprayed oil so the seasoning will stick to the mixture well.
Keep little of the season so we can combine after taking out of the fryer.
Once it's done frying, remove the crispy chickpeas and place them in a bowl. Sprinkle the set-aside seasoning and toss everything until mixed
Now you have a crispy and delicious Chickpea fry!
