Chickpeas with Fresh Tomatoes

Leave the chickpeas for almost 12-14 hour in water and then cooked them by using the pressure cooker. I usually cook 300 g of chickpeas with 500 ml of not salted water for 40-50 minutes according to your taste. I usually prefer firmer chickpeas so I cook them for 40 minutes. While the chickpeas cook, chop the onion and cut the fresh tomatoes in small pieces.
