It can be done with dry chickpeas(the shop owners r doing this way) like we dry roast groundnuts. Choose export quality black chickpeas(that are not shrunk inside) to see superb results. U can wash or rinse, wipe-dry and roast otherwise.I haven't tried it soaking fully. It came out good - soak for 15 mins,wipe-dry and make it dry for 2-3 hours and then dry-roast.
