Maya Kaimal Chickpea Chips

by Anne Paddock

Chickpeas – also known as garbanzo beans – are loaded with protein and fiber.  Easily made into a flour, chickpeas can be used to make a variety of products including chips that are crispy and savory. Maya Kaimal Fine Indian Foods combines flour made from chickpeas with rice flour, sunflower and canola oil, dehydrated potatoes, rice starch, sesame seeds and spices to make a flavorful and delicious chip. Similar to murukku – savory and crunchy twists made from rice and bean flour in India –  Maya Kaimal Chickpea Chips are a great alternative to traditional chips.

The Lightly Salted Chickpea Chip has a natural nutty flavor enhanced with a spice called asafetida that adds a light scallion flavor to the crispy chip. The Seeded Multigrain Chickpea Chip contains four types of seeds: chia, cumin, white and black sesame seeds along with asafetida and cayenne pepper to give the chip a little spice and big flavor. The Sweet Chili Chickpea Chip contains fruit and vegetable juice, vinegar, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and spices to give the chip a slightly sweet but savory flavor.

Gluten-free, kosher, vegan, and made from non-GMO ingredients, Maya Kaimal Chickpea Chips contain 140 calories , 2-3 grams of protein, and 100-130 mg of sodium per one ounce serving.  But, the best attribute is the taste. Enjoy the chips right out of the bag or with hummus, dal, or your favorite dip.
