Put the chickpeas to cook for about 40 minutes or 1 hour, otherwise 20 minutes in an express pot.

Cut the tomatoes in pieces like these, you can peel the tomato which is ok but I prefer like this due it grants fiber to the body and it gives a better flavor to the Chickpea soup , but I left you to choose the best way for you.

The onion is sliced ​​into half-moons; it gives a very special flavor and consistency to Chickpea soup Granny’s recipe. The Saffron is liquefied; being careful because it paints a lot, then it is strained. Also the dough is liquefied with the seasoning and then to strain also.
