These savory pancakes are quick and easy to prepare, they are prepared using chickpea flour also called garbanzo bean flour. Chickpea flour has a natural egglike flavor when cooked, it is high in protein and fiber.

How To Make Chickpea Pancake Recipe?

  1. Heat skillet over medium-high heat, add 1/2 cup vegetable broth or water. Heat until liquid is bubbling. Add onion, garlic bell pepper, green onion, and cook until onion is soft about 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in potatoes, cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes. 
  3. Remove vegetables and spread on a plate to cool slightly while you get the batter ingredients ready.
  4. Sift chickpea flour and add to a large bowl. Stir in nutritional yeast flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, baking powder, salt. 
  5. Add water to the dry ingredients and stir until batter is smooth, stir in the vegetables. 
  6. Heat skillet over medium-high heat, brush with oil. Add 1/2 cup of batter and spread the batter evenly. 
  7. Cook pancake on one side until golden brown, for about 5 minutes, flip the pancake and cover with a lid to make sure the batter cooks in the middle. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  8. Repeat until all the batter is used up. 

Chef’s Tip:

  • I find this batter stuck to the bottom of my pan after my first two pancakes, therefore I highly recommend that you brush the bottom of your non-stick skillet with oil. 
  • While cooking your pancakes, make sure to cover the skillet to make sure they cook in the middle. 
  • Sift your chickpea flour to make sure there aren’t any lumps in the batter. 
  • Prepare the dry ingredients the day before and store it in an air-tight container. The following day, add water and stir into a batter then add cooked vegetables.
