We have recently been experimenting with different types of flours and our latest fav is chickpea or gram flour which is naturally gluten free too. These fritters are a quick and easy lunch, light dinner or great for entertaining!
1 small red onion
Large handful of fresh coriander or parsley
2 cups of chickpea flour/gram flour
1 tsp baking powder (GF if needed)
½ tsp ground coriander
½ tsp ground cumin
3/4 cup of water
Pinch of salt/black pepper
Oil for cooking
Optional: Pinch of chilli powder or flakes
How to make:
Finely chop the red onion and herbs. We do this using the amazing Kenwood food processor.
Add the remaining ingredients into the food processor and whizz to combine.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a non-stick pan and add tablespoons of the mixture to the pan, fry for 1-2 minutes each side until cooked through.
Serve with salad and a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream and sweet chilli sauce.
Don't have red onion? No worries, white onion is fine.
Don't have those spices in? 1 tsp of curry powder is a great substitute.
You can also add 1/2 a capsicum in there too for extra colour and flavour, just add to the blender at the start with the herbs and onion.
Love corn? Add some in after blending! this is a versatile base recipe you can adapt to suit you!
Did you know:
Chickpea flour is packed with both protein and fibre.
It has 10g of protein and 10g fibre in a 50g serving, which is awesome! Given we need 28g of fibre a day as females, guys you need 38g a day to keep your insides healthy, this is a great step in the right direction. It is naturally gluten free.
You can buy it in most supermarkets, wholefood stores and bulk food stores. Google it and you'll see it is easy to find in your local area!
