1 1/2 cups dried chick peas
1 medium onion -- diced
3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons dried mint
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin seed

Preparation / Directions:

1 Soak the chick peas overnight then boil, and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. 2 Mix the onions and spices together in a small bowl. Using a non-stick pan, then fry in the oil until the onions are brown (5 to 10 minutes). 3 Thoroughly mix the fried onion, cooked chick peas, lemon juice, parsley, and mint in a medium size bowl. 4 On medium-high heat, fry everything until the chick peas start to soften (about 10 minutes). Cover, and set the heat on very low for 15 to 20 minutes. 5 Serve hot or cold. Great for picnics! ** Variations ** Add one more diced onion. Use olive, sesame, or safflower oil instead of peanut.
