Stages of cooking

  1. Take canned chickpea and sift it. You will need the sauce only

  2. Take a deep bowl and pour 150 ml of the sifted sauce into it

  3. Whip the chickpea sauce using the mixer until you get dense white foam-like mass. This process takes more time as it takes to whip the egg whites. While whipping the meringue, gradually add sugar. The meringue should be smooth and glistening

  4. Add zest (vanilla) and food dye dissolved in 1 tablespoon of chickpea sauce that has been left. Whip the mass once again. You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice or lemon liqueur while whipping the sugar, but this is an optional step and you can omit it if you are pressed for time

  5. As soon as your meringue is ready, take a pastry bag and make small round-shaped meringue cookies. Do not forget to cover the baking pan with the baking paper before the process
