Preheat the oven to 425°F / 220ºc.
Bake for 20 minutes. Spray oil on the chickpeas, move them around with a long spatula (move the inner chickpeas out), and turn the tray around. Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, until the chickpeas are crisp. If the chickpeas start to brown too quickly, reduce the temperature to 350° F / 180ºc and bake until crisp. Move the chickpeas around every 5 to 8 minutes.
Notes: Bake the chickpeas longer for a crispier, crunchier result. Bake a minute or so less for a softer inside. Use other spices of choice.I often make these with just salt, chaat masala and cayenne.
To make Crisp Chickpea Chaat: Toss the roasted chickpeas with chopped red onion, tomato, cilantro and chutneys of choice such as mint cilantro chutney or tamarind date chutney. Serve.
