ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 10 minutes
Yield: 6 cups

Procedure

  • Place the water, chickpeas, and salt in a 7-quart pressure cooker (the water should cover the chickpeas and come to the 1/3 full line). Cover and lock the lid. Bring to pressure over high heat, about 15 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to low, so that you barely hear hissing from the pot. Cook for 45 minutes.
  • Release the pressure by running cold water over the lid for 5 minutes. Open carefully. Drain and serve immediately, or use in desired dish.
