These are not your average garbanzos! The golden dragon garbanzo bean is known as a desi chana type chickpea. Desi chana (North India) or Boot in eastern India, are smaller and darker with a rougher seed coat. These types of chickpeas are commonly hulled to make dishes like "chana dal".

Garbanzo beans were originally cultivated in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, hence their common use in dishes from these regions. Chickpeas are, in fact, one of the oldest cultivated legumes in the world. The earliest varieties date back 7500 years ago!
