Chickpea Pancake, HTCEV, p 633

JOY!!!!! My books arrived and I couldn't wait to get started today. I bought gram flour recently and was happy to find the recipe for this chickpea pancake. I made the batter following all the directions, but I was afraid that it wasn't thick enough. I poured it into my pan and crossed my fingers. I was sure that it would never cook properly in 15 minutes. After 14 minutes in the oven it still didn't look right. At 15 minutes exactly, it was perfect!!!!! Amazing.

This is how it looked in the pan when it was finished baking.
But this is how it looked when I placed it on the serving plate.
Somehow I was able to get it out of the pan in one piece. It was absolutely delicious. I will make it again. I will make variations. I will trust The Bittman!!!!!
Bon Appetit.


  1. Just looking at this is making my mouth water! Ben and I will have to experiment with it. Do you know if we could just grind dried chickpeas into a flour?

  2. I would imagine you could do that but the stores on 28th and Lex have it. See One Day In The Week for the exact address.
