1 lb. dry garbanzo bean, soaked in water overnight

1/4 tsp. cayenne powder

1/2 tsp paprika

salt to taste

vegetable oil

Add vegetable oil in deep pan and heat to 350 degrees. Drain garbanzos and dry off. Test oil for correct heat by placing a cube of bread in the oil; it should turn golden brown in 15 seconds. Once oil is up to temperature  add half of the soaked garbanzos to the oil and fry until golden brown. You may want to cover the pan at first when the garbanzos are first added,; they can pop at first.  Remove from oil and drain on try with crumpled paper towels . Place hot garbanzos in a bowl and toss with seasonings until well coated.Repeat with remaining garbanzos. Allow to cool before eating.
