Fatteh : Middle Eastern Baked Chickpeas

Some  countries cuisines are very similar to Indian Cuisines. One of them is Middle Eastern, They used whole spices more in their recipes and who don't like their hummus, falafel and other dishes. I saw this dish and instantly made it ,because I always have boiled chickpeas in freezer. I got the whole 4 lbs. chickpeas , soak them, boiled them and store in it freezer, so when ever I need it , just make the masala for indian food or for salad , just thawed and have it, no worry about if I forgot to soak the night before. So I took out my chickpeas and thawed it and made this amazing dish. Only thing was I was out of pita so I crispy tortilla and have it but for the true taste have it with pita.  This is very famous middle eastern dish which cooked with chickpeas, spices and baked it and then top it with sour cream or yogurt, I had greek yogurt on top .

Ingredients :

2 cups of Cooked Chickpeas or you can use 1 can, drained and rinsed
1 cup Greek or plain yogurt or sour cream
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika or Indian red chili powder
1 tsp. coriander powder - I grind fresh both , cumin and coriander
1 tsp Tahini
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts - I didn't add it.
2 tbsp. olive oil
Freshly chopped parsley or coriander leaves
As per taste salt and black pepper
2 Pita , cut into wedges


Method:


Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Put the pita on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes or until it's lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven and set aside.

While pita is baking, in a pan, add olive oil and add onions in it. 
Cook till its browned.
Add all the powder spices, and garlic cook for a minute. Then add chickpeas in it. 
Take it out, add tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper and drizzle some olive oil.
Put everything in baking dish and bake for 10 minutes until everything is cooked through. 
Remove from the oven and take it out in bowl, spread yogurt on top and put parsley or coriander leaves on top and put the pita wedges on side and enjoy your lovely dinner.
