English term or phrase: chickpea

My dictionaries contradict one another on this, so I'd like to ask you, please.

Please see:

Some of them are the dried variety; interestingly, when they are roasted, Turkish uses a completely different word (leblebi). The usual Turkish word for ‘chickpea’ is ‘nohut’, but you seem to use نخود for peas rather than chickpeas (or maybe both?).

All the best, and many thanks,
