Chickpea Flour Crepes

Indian fried flatbreads for breakfast, brunch and dinner. A batch of these keeps for a few days and is a nourishing accompaniment to a variety of meals and is especially nice with a chutney or some pickles and rice. If you are in a pinch for dinner, I would suggest rolling these up with a paneer cheese filling, served along with a potato dish. More Indian pancakes and crepes are coming soon. As I said, it is an obsession ...
chickpea flour crepes
  • 1 1/2 cups chickpea flour (besan)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, minced or grated
  • 3 fresh green chilies, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • dash of cayenne
  • dash of turmeric
  • dash of ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups water
  • sesame oil for frying
  • In a medium bowl, combine the chickpea flour, onion, parsley, ginger, chilies, coriander, salt, baking soda, cayenne, turmeric and cumin.

  • Add enough of the water until you have a semi-thick batter and whisk with a fork. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

  • In a small non-stick frying pan, heat a few teaspoons of oil over medium heat. When hot, ladle about 1/2 cup into the pan and shape into a circle with the bottom of the ladle. Fry for a few minutes until the ends begin to brown, sprinkle with a bit of oil, and flip and cook for another minute or two.

  • Transfer to a plate and keep warm in a 150° oven. Repeat with the remaining batter.
