Shazia! Garbanzo beans are chick peas or white chana/choley that can be found easily at any store. All you need to do is just soak them overnight and boil it. Now, Tahini is a seasame seed(til) paste or sauce. We have its recipe video of how to make it from scratch on this website. Here Im sharing its link for your convenience. How to make Tahini Enjoy!!!!
