  1. Thanks for the recipe. Two things… (1) The measure of chickpeas in ingredients and methods is different. Could you please correct the confusing statement? (2) 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil is suggested. Can we substitute it with any other oil commonly used in India/Andhra? (One can’t buy small measure of extra virgin olive oil costing in the range of INR 1000 a liter).
