If you want a really great recipe for zucchini pakoras, or fritters, it's so simple, you'll want to make these frequently. You can also use large white mushroom slices, Vidalia onion rings, even thinly sliced potato or sweet potato. Slices of cauliflower, carrot and whole trimmed green beans work, too. Here's the recipe:
1 cup Chickpea Flour
1/2 cup water
1 tsp Garam Masala (Indian spice mix)
2 tsp each, grated gingerroot and mashed garlic
1/2 tsp ground chili pepper
Mix this up until it's nice and smooth. This is your batter.
Thinly slice (1/4 inch) zucchini, or mushrooms, onions (make into rings), potatoes or use a mix of these vegetables. Dip each piece into the batter and coat well. Fry in a cast iron skillet with a shallow layer of vegetable oil (you don't need more than a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of oil.) When the fritters are caramel-brown on one side, flip and cook the other side. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt, if you like. I use tongs to flip the vegetables. These are fantastic as appetizers or a quick snack.
Use tips: *NOT* a good substitute for wheat flour in dough-based breads, though, as your dough will crumble. Much better used in thin batters... pancakes, crepes, etc. One good use is making crepes (use a normal crepe recipe, substitute bean flour for wheat flour, omit egg, and fry crepe at a lower temperature for a bit longer than normal to get rid of the beany taste)... then fill with whatever you want, for dessert I like farmer's cheese and then topped with honey, very healthy!).
I have some bread recipes that use this flour and I can't wait to try them!
I honestly cannot tell you what possessed me to buy 88 ounces of chickpea flour. But I decided a couple of weeks ago that I'd paid for it, so I'd better use it. I've since gone seeking recipes on the internet (won't bother to post them here since you can find the same ones using your favorite search engine; gluten-free cooking sites especially have a lot of offerings). I've been quite pleased with the results.
I have used this flour for:
This is a very easy flour to work with. It doesn't clump easily and I can make things like cracker dough without resorting to the food processor. (Not that I don't love my Cuisinart, it's just easier clean up if I don't have to drag it out.) The pancakes did not taste at all beany. You could actually use just about any pancake recipe and substitute an equal amount of chickpea flour for all-purpose flour, and it should work.
The recipe for falafel patties was on my bag. (If it's not on yours -- I think they do occasionally change up the recipes printed there -- there are a lot of recipes for Bob's products on the Bob's Red Mill website, as well.) Anyway, the recipe is great because it works, even for inexperienced cooks. It's easier than using actual mashed up chickpeas to make falafel, because you don't have to add additional flour or egg to make the patties stick together (so good for vegans).Read more ›
