Hard little pellets. A sorry, tasteless excuse for a chickpea.
Chickpeas are one of the most versatile legumes on the shelves. They’re lovely if you can be bothered to cook the dried ones, but good quality canned chickpeas usually still pack enough moreish flavour and satisfying, mealy texture to prop up a whole host of great dishes.
These are rubbish – undercooked, hard little pellets without a great deal of flavour. They’d make excellent shotgun ammo, but they’re not great in a curry. Serviceable for houmous or falafels if you don’t have any other options. Better brands: Napolina or anything from the Indian foods aisle.
