Garbanzo Beans/ Kacang Puteh



Garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) is popular known as kacang puteh in Malaysia. It is an healthy and delicious snack. I used to buy kacang puteh from Indian vendors, wrapped in a piece of white paper, but one could hardly find chickpeas sellers nowadays.

It is very easy to make your own kacang puteh at home.

Recipe :


Chickpeas / garbanzo beans

A pinch of bicarb of soda (the bicarb helps to soften the beans. If you don't add, you'll be soaking and boiling too many days.haha)


1. Soak chickpeas overnight with a pinch of bicarb of soda.

2 Rinse beans the next day with water

3 Put chickpeas in a pot and add water.

4 Boil 1 1/2 hours until soften

5 Drain and it is ready to serve.

p.s. Another name for this is kacang kuda.
