    Re: dried peas

    I don't know what the name of 'dried chickpeas' is. Here they are called 'spiced roasted chickpeas' but I think there might be a simpler word.

    We use salty 'dried chickpeas' with 'raisins' as a kind of nut.

    Re: dried peas

    The word might be gram. Does gram sound like it might have a Persian origin?

    Re: dried peas

    Chickpea itself is a simpler word for garbanzo nut, but hardly anybody will have heard of that.

    I think you mean 'We eat salted dried chickpeas with raisins as a kind of snack'.
