Description:

Garbanzo beans, also known as Chickpeas, were first cultivated around approximately 3000 to 5000 BCE. Their cultivation began in the Mediterranean and spread to India and Ethiopia and was brought to other subtropical regions of the world by both Spanish and Portuguese explorers as well as Indians who immigrated to other countries. Garbanzo Beans are small, hard, roughly globular, beige or black beans about 3/8 inch round. Garbanzo beans have a delicious nutlike taste and firm buttery texture. High in protein, they are a good source of calcium, the B Vitamins, and iron. Called by other names such as Ceci, Cici, Cheechee, Pois Chiche, Gran, Kabuli, Channa, or Safaid Beans, these beans are extremely versatile. They are a noted ingredient in many Middle Eastern and Indian dishes and can be made into a coffee-like drink if roasted brown then ground. Garbanzo beans can be ground into a flour called gram flour, ground and shaped into balls and fried as falafel, stirred into a batter and baked to make farinata, or cooked and ground into a paste called hummus. Garbanzo beans are found often in Indian and Mediterranean dishes. Ground Garbanzo Beans are used to make fritters, dumplings and spicy breads. Ground Garbanzo Beans are also referred to as Cici Flour or Chick Pea Flour.
