chick pea flour pancakes

Ingredients
  • 1 cup chick pea flour
  • 1½ cups water
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

You can add the following (in blue) but they are just as yummy plain!

  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ¼ teaspoon carom seeds or cumin seeds
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 hot green chile, finely chopped (remove seeds to reduce heat)
  •  
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon safflower oil, divided
 
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine the chickpea flour and ¾ cup water. Whisk to get a smooth consistency. Whisk in another ½ to ¾ cup water to make a thin lump-free batter. (If using besan, you will need less water).
  2. Add the salt, turmeric, cayenne, carom seeds, onion, chile, , and 1 teaspoon of oil, and mix well. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, drizzle a few drops of oil on the skillet. Spread the oil using a paper towel. Pour a ladle full (1/4 to ⅓ cup) of the batter onto the skillet. Spread the batter by moving the skillet to make a 6 to 8-inch pancake. Drizzle a few drops of oil on the edges of the pancake.
  4. Cook until the edges start to leave the pan and the bottom is golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 to 4 minutes. Continue to make the rest of the pancakes. Serve hot.
