Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), a legume crop belonging to the Fabaceae family, is consumed all over the world, especially in Afro-Asian countries. Chickpea is the third pulse crop in production in the world after dry beans and field beans. There is an increasing demand for chickpea because it has a high nutritional value and is a cheap source of protein with potentially health-beneficial phytochemicals (Wood and Grusak 2007). Chickpea seeds are used in the form of mature dry seeds as a popular snack food, whether whole or split (dhal), or as a flour that is used as a supplement in weaning food mixes, breads, and biscuits (Alajaji and ElAdawy 2006).
