Chickpea Flour and Veggie Fritters

By Sunday, August 03, 2014 , , , ,

Anyone who has eaten Asian takeaway food before knows how delicious battered vegetables are. Whether it be onion bhajis, veggie pakoras or tempura vegetables, it's delicious. That combination of that crunchy batter and the soft veggies inside is just amazing. But it's hard to find them without wheat flour and if you're like me and prefer your food not to be super greasy, making your own is a fantastic alternative to deep frying.

These make a wonderful starter for noodle or stirfry dish and they're just delicious on their own too!

Makes 6 fritters or 12 bite sized tempura veggies

You will need:

2/3 cup chickpea (besan) flour
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp tumeric

2 cups mixed vegetables chopped into small chunks
1/2 onion, cut into thick slices

Whisk the chickpea flour, water and salt together until it makes a smooth batter. Add in the vegetables and mix well until they are well coated in the batter. Heat a large frying pan with 1 tbsp of coconut oil and let the oil get hot, then using a spoon, evenly drop the batter onto the pan. Let them cook for about 3 minutes, swirling the oil around the pan to ensure the base gets crispy. Using a spatula, flip the fritters and allow to brown on the other side. Repeat until all the mixture has been used up, adding more oil to the pan between batches
