A question about a recipe: Smoky Fried Chickpeas

229c568d c7cb 420e bfe8 de0aa0efd2b2  100609f 0781

I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Smoky Fried Chickpeas" from Aliwaks. It says:

"Drain Chickpeas and set on paper towels over a colander to dry throughly (can be done 1 day in advance)."

Curious if it makes a difference whether to rinse the chickpeas in cold water or not? Thank you!

You could if you want to reduce the salt content somewhat (depending on the brand you are using--some brands contain reduced salt, some no salt, or some are salted well). As for the draining, you want them as dry as possible, as they do "spit" quite a bit when you drop them in the hot oil, so the rinsing wouldn't affect that, so long as they are drained and dried well.
