Chickpeas are one of the most used ingredients in various cuisines. The chickpea originated in the Middle East about 7500 years ago. It was first cultivated in about 3000BC and was popular among the ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians. It was not until the 16th Century that the chickpea was brought to other parts of the world by Spanish explorers. Today, chickpeas are popular among all parts of the world, more so in North Africa, Spain and India.
