  1. We made something similar and experienced the same problem! My recipe bakes the chick peas after adding the spice – would be interesting to compare the two approaches. Being a lover of salt and vinegar chips I want to try this using a little balsamic vinegar and sea salt – have you tried any variants in the flavouring?
