A question about a recipe: World's Easiest Falafel and Tzatziki


I have a question about the ingredient "dried chickpeas, rinsed well and soaked overnight" on the recipe "World's Easiest Falafel and Tzatziki" from marisab67.

I checked two different grocery stores in my area (Giant and Fresh & Green's) and neither sell dried chickpeas. Is there a specific chain of grocery store I should try?

They are fairly common in the "bulk bins" sections of groceries. Sometimes labeled garbanzo beans, too.

Check any Indian Grocery stores in your area, they'll carry it (look for 'Kabuli Channa)

If you are anywhere near a Hispanic area, they'll be in the section with all the other dried beans. The supermarket near my house has a whole wall of Goya products. They are sometimes also called Chi-Chi Peas.

You may find them in the supermarket, in the 'ethnic' section. I would look first in you closest independent health food store -- support small local business!
