Swaps. I love to keep it simple and season my chickpeas with salt, pepper and then use water. You can mix it up and add flavours, but when making in bulk by keeping it simple you can use it in a lot of different recipes.
Size. You can also measure it in cups and its 2 cups of chickpeas to 6 cups of water. Or even easier, think that the water is triple the chickpeas.
