Converting dried chickpeas to soaked?

Isolda | Apr 23, 201504:51 AM     16

Yes, soaked, not cooked. I have a recipe (Mark Bittman's baked falafel) that calls for 1 3/4 cups dried chickpeas, which you then soak before proceeding with the recipe. However, I have already soaked an pound of chickpeas overnight, so I need to know how much of these I should use.

I can't seem to locate a formula that tells how much chickpeas increase in volume after an overnight soaking. After cooking yes, but soaking, no.

I know someone out there in chow world will know this!
