Boil the chickpeas according to the instructions on the package. I've been doing this since tonight.
Before cooking, soak the chickpeas in cold water for at least 4 hours. (Soaking shortens the cooking time of chickpeas and makes it softer.) Put the washed chickpeas in a saucepan with water in a ratio of 1:5, bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes on high heat, and then until cooked for 50-60 minutes on low heat. Add salt at the end of cooking, as this slows down the cooking process.
