Indian Cuisine/Bahrain cuisine (chickpeas)


Hi there.
While in Bahrain I tasted what I believe to be an indian dish (Nagage Basheer - Spicy Chickpeas). My Bahraini friends are not able to give me an exact receipe.  They serve it in the markets with samosa or potatoes - any idea?  It was my favourite!!!!

Hello Cushla,

Because I don't know exactly which snack you ate, I'm not sure of the recipe.  Here is a link to a variety of chickpea snacks, and you can also google 'chaat' for great snack variations.

My personal favorite is: and it is important to follow the recipe exactly.

Good luck!
