    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.
    2. Stir together the chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, brown sugar, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, garam masala, black pepper, cayenne pepper and salt in a mixing bowl. Spread the chickpea mixture in a single layer on the prepared baking tray.
    3. Roast in the preheated oven until the chickpeas are dark brown in spots, crisp, and have shrunk quite a bit, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time. Cool to room temperature before serving.

    Tastes really yummy, although I was surprised that the chick peas were still soft in the middle...  -  15 Jul 2012

    I am the one who submitted this recipe. I'd like to point out that although the nutrition information makes it sound like this recipe is high in fat, most of the oil stays in the pan when you're done. It's just there to make the seasonings adhere to the chickpeas, and to keep the chickpeas from sticking to the pan. Probably some cooking spray would do the same trick if you're concerned.  -  25 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
