  3. IF Using Saucepan - Cover the lid and heat the saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the water starts to boil, lower the heat and cook for 30-40 minutes. The boiled chickpeas must be easily crushed with your fingers.
  4. IF Using Pressure Cooker - Cover the lid and heat over high heat. Cook for three whistles.
  5. IF Using Instant Pot - Cover the lid and seal the valve. Select Manual and cook for 6 minutes on High Pressure.

  7. Top it off with roasted cumin powder and roasted sesame seeds.
