The time required to cook chickpeas (Cicer arietinum) varies from 55 to over 200 min. Seed weight and volume, swelling index and hydration capacity were found to correlate with cooking time. Correlation coefficients of between 0.65 and 0.75 were found for kabuli‐type (large seed) chickpeas, and coefficients of between 0.78 and 0.87 when desi types (small seed) were included. These relationships enable large numbers of chickpea genotypes to be screened rapidly into long, medium and short cooking time types.
