Equipment

Spice mix (as per your taste)

  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ½ tbsp. dried mango powder amchur or any seasoning of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon Salt as per taste

Instructions

Notes

To cook them in the oven,just follow the same steps, the total cook time will be around 20-22 minutes at the same temperature.Pre heat the oven before you cook them.
Please note that few air fryers circulate a lot of air due to the basket, hence the chickpeas blow up.I would suggest to use a perforated baking sheet / baking sheet with few holes, that will ensure that they do not blow around in the air fryer
