Chickpea and Olive अप्पेतिज़ेर

Serves 4 to 6.

1 cup dried chickpeas, washed and soaked overnight in 8 cups water
1/2 cup black olives, chopped
1/4 cup scallions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander leaves (cilantro)
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Place the chickpeas with their water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat for about 2-1/2 hours, or until the chickpeas are tender. Drain; then place the chickpeas in a salad bowl and allow to cool. (Or, substitute half a 19 oz. can of chickpeas, drained.) Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Serve immediately.
