If you’d like to take a shot at making your own yummy tamarind syrup to accompany these guys, you can find our easy recipe here. If you’d like to use something store bought you can look for pre-made tamarind chutney, or just drizzle with your favorite hot sauce or salsa.
- 3/4 cup of chickpea flour
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cumin, ground
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
- 1/4 tsp turmeric, ground
- 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
- 1 tsp fresh ginger, finely chopped, minced, or grated
- 1/4 cup sliced crimini/or white mushrooms (or spinach or chopped greens)
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (or parsley)
- 1-2 Tbsp medium-high heat oil (avocado, canola, grape seed, refined coconut)
Prepare you pancake batter by combining chickpea flour, water, salt and all spices in a medium bowl and whisking well until no lumps remain. Let rest while you prepare vegetables.
Add chopped onions, ginger, cilantro, and mushrooms to batter and stir well to combine.
Heat oil in a skillet (non-stick or well-seasoned cast iron is good here), and when oil is hot, add one ladle of chickpea vegetable batter. Swirl pan around to spread batter out slightly. Let cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes on first side until edges begin to dry and curl up a bit. Very carefully, use spatula to lift up and flip over (they can sometimes stick a bit, so just gently lift it up). Cook on other side for 3-4 minutes until cooked through, crispy, and well browned. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve drizzled with tamarind sauce/syrup/chutney/Sriracha/condiment of choice, and sprinkle with additional cilantro if desired. Enjoy!
