Chick pea question!

Help! I soaked 1/2 cup of beans in water overnight. Now, how long do I need to cook them? I cant find this anywhere, most recipes used canned beans.


Anyhelp greatly appreciated!!

Chick peas will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours at simmer to get soft.

If you boil stuff regularly then a pressure cooker would be a good investment. The chickpeas would take 20 mins to boil in it. You should find it at an Indian store.

Hi redkitty, chick peas take the longest time for becoming soft! Try to add 1/2 tea spoon bicarbonate in the water, it should help to reduce time!

If you use a pressure cooker be sure and add a couple TBS of oil. This helps GREATLY reduce the foam, which can clog the vents of a pressure cooker. Clogged vents are NOT a good thing

I deleted some messages, so send away!

You can buy dry chickpeas, thats what I do instead of buying them in a can.

IIRC, isn`t there some sort of recipe where you blitz them all up in blender to a paste and use that with some other things and cook it?
I`ve long forgoten the name and indeed the recipe, I think there`s also a Dip you can make too?
