Notes

At Step 3 - You can use 1 cup of chicken stock and put into a blender with the toasted bread cubes and 2 tablespoons chickpea. Blitz to a pasty liquid and continue with the recipe.
At Step 4 - ½ teaspoon ground cumin can be added with the paprika if desired.
If using Dried Chickpeas - Place chickpeas in a bowl and cover with cold water. Set aside overnight to soak. Drain chickpeas and place in a saucepan with 1 litre (4 cups) of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes or until cooked. Drain and set aside.
