- tahini - 3 tbsp.
- garlic - 3-4 cloves.
- smoked paprika - 1.5 tsp.
Method of preparation:
1. Add 1 tsp. of baking soda to chickpeas and cover with cold water. Refrigerate overnight. After that, rinse it several times, add baking soda (0.5 tsp) again, cover with water and cook over medium heat until tender (1-1.5 hours). Drain the rest of the water in which the chickpeas were cooked into a separate plate.
