After spending almost six months traveling Southeast Asia, my love for curry flourished. Curry’s are so flavorful, and depending on the dish there are so many different spice combinations. I love roasted chickpea’s in general, but I especially love them with an Indian curry twist. Also, did I say how easy these are to make?!

I know I have already mentioned how amazing and versatile chickpeas are (check out my Chickpea Hazelnut Spread recipe if you don’t believe me!), but they truly are wonderful. They are a good source of protein and fiber, and can be added to almost anything from stews to breads (more recipes to come!).

These Indian Curry Roasted Chickpeas are the perfect choice for a healthy snack on the go. They can also be added to your salad to give some flavor and protein (again, soooo versatile!). Next time you have company over, serve these as an appetizer instead of chips for less fat and calories.


To make the roasted chickpeas, preheat oven to 400Β°F. While oven is preheating, in a large bowl lined with paper towel add chickpeas to dry. Pat dry any additional moisture you can see. Once chickpeas are dry and oven is preheated, remove paper towel and add all other ingredients to bowl and mix. Madras Curry powder is more flavorful then regular curry powder, but if you do not have it regular curry powder will work too. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper, and place chickpeas on top. Place chickpeas in oven for 15 minutes, remove to mix and then place back in oven for additional 10-15 minutes until crunchy. If you prefer extra crunchiness, leave in the oven while it cools.

Voila! Your Indian Curry Roasted Chickpeas are now ready to be served!

    Do you mean marsala wine (Italian) or garam masala (Indian spice mix)?

    Hi a great dish. I make it all the time. The ingredient garam is a ma sala not marsala which is a fortified wine
