Happy Monday friends!
Today we are going meatless and taking care of snack time with these yummy chickpea french fries.
These potato free fries are a healthier alternative to your typical fry.
I love fries. I mean, who doesn’t? I could eat them all the time and NOW I can.
Think polenta vibes with this recipe. The outside is super crunchy and then the inside is super creamy.
Indian recipes use chickpea flour in a lot of dishes like pancakes, chili paneer, bhajiya’s, sabzi...the list goes on, and is a healthier alternative to regular flour.
Chickpea flour is packed with protein and other nutrients making it an obvious choice as an alternative!
a little bit about this recipe.
Some recipes call for boiling water, but I found ice cold water works best to ensure that your batter does not have any lumps.
Play around with your batter and add in fun seasonings. I added chili powder and cumin to mine, but some fresh herbs would be nice, or even Old Bay.
For the dipping sauce I used desi style whole milk yogurt, but feel free to use Greek yogurt or make an aioli.
anyways, keeping it short and sweet today.
Hope you enjoy!
