It is necessary to pre-soak chickpea for at least four hours, ideally up to eight hours. According to the pre- soaking time, chickpea is then cooked for 2-3 hours. In a pressure cooker, chickpea is prepared in 40 minutes. Soak chickpea in salty water, because it will get soft more quickly. Salt improves its taste and cooking evenness. After cooking, you can use the water to whisk it into solid snow as you do it with egg whites. The obtained snow can then be used for baking or for vegan option of meringues.
