Dried chickpeas (kabuli chana) are a wonderfully versatile ingredient – make your own houmous, or add to veggie curries and stews. Use these to make chana masala, using the Natco chana masala spice blend.
Chickpeas are delicious lightly grilled and drizzled with olive oil and salt, or scattered across a salad for extra bite. Make a veggie chickpea burger, or roughly chop and add them to falafel mix for a more varied texture.
