Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas (garbanzos)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne

Preparation

  1. 1. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Spread in a single layer on a clean kitchen towel or paper towels and pat dry.
  2. 2. In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring 2 in. oil to 350° to 375° (use a candy thermometer, or drop a chickpea in—when it sizzles, the oil is ready).
  3. 3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Set aside.
  4. 4. With a large spoon or strainer, lower chickpeas carefully into oil. (They will spatter.) Cook until chickpeas are hot and crispy (test 1 for doneness), about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon or strainer, transfer chickpeas to several layers of paper towels and drain 1 minute.
  5. 5. Toss chickpeas with spice mixture. Serve immediately.
