Chickpeas are pulses; they are prepared and eaten in a variety of ways. Dahl is one of the most popular foods derived from chickpeas. Chickpeas are a staple food in the Middle East and the subcontinent. India is the largest buyer of Australian chickpeas.
Chickpeas are a winter crop and, because they are legumes, are valuable as a rotation crop with other winter cereals such as wheat and barley.
