  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp white sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 2 cups boiled and drained chickpeas
  • 3/4 cup aquafaba (chickpeas water)
  • Salt as per taste


  • Heat oil in a nonstick pan. Add garlic, sesame seeds and coconut. Saute for 30 seconds on a medium flame.
  • Increase the flame to high and add soy sauce immediately. As the bubbles of soy sauce forms lower the flame.
  • Add vinegar, maple syrup, black pepper and mix well.
  • Add chickpeas and aquafaba and mix. Cook covered on medium flame for 5-7 minutes or until its well-blended and chickpeas do not have raw taste. Do not let it dry. Slight liquid should float at the bottom to flavor the entree.
  • Lastly sprinkle salt as per your taste and serve warm with steamed rice.



  • use fresh homemade boiled chickpeas. Also I used fresh homemade aquafaba for this recipe.
  • Aquafaba is the leftover chickpea water that’s used for boiling chickpeas/garbanzo beans.
  • For us there was no need to add salt so feel free to sprinkle salt as per your taste.
  • If while cooking the liquid dries up add about ¼ cup of water to chickpeas and cook covered at a low flame until water is well cooked. Adjust the spice a little before serving.
