Chickling

Chickling
Chickling
PAT - Traditional Agri-Foodstuffs


A not very known legume, it is cultivated in small quantities because of its exclusively manual processing. It looks like a chick pea, but it has a flattened shape. It is obtained from herbaceous plants growing on dry and sunny soils. It is harvested in summer and is left drying until the threshing period. Chicklings are sold only dry and, before using them, they must be soaked for a long time. They have a strong taste and good nutritional values.
