  • Soak chickpeas in water over night. Pressure cook it with water and salt for about 5 to 8 whistles (After the first whistle, I usually keep the stove on simmer mode for around 15 to 20 minutes). The water level should be just above the chick peas level.
  • If excess water is present when the cooker is opened after the pressure subsides, cook it until it becomes dry.
  • Heat a pan with oil.
