1. Canned garbanzo will work well for this recipe. Make sure you drain all the liquid and then proceed.
2. You can also add pomegranate pearls to this recipe to make it richer.
3. In case you plan to serve this as a salad and make it ahead, then dont add the lemon juice in the beginning. Add the lemon juice just before serving.
