For 4 Person(s)

Chickpea Fries

  • 1 tblsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 tblsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp thyme, fresh, minced
  • 1/2 tsp coriander, ground
  • 2 cups chickpea flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
  • oil for frying


In a medium saucepan on medium heat, add grapeseed oil and sauté onions until translucent.

Add minced garlic, fresh thyme, coriander and half the salt. Sauté until garlic is fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Add water and remaining salt along with chick pea flour. 

Bring to a boil and continually stir mixture until thick to the consistency of cream of wheat.

Spread on a well-oiled glass casserole dish or small parchment lined and oiled baking sheet.

Cover with another sheet of oiled parchment and wrap with plastic wrap. Cool at least 4 hours.

Cut into manageable sizes and drop into 375 degree oil, cook until golden brown.

These will also pan fry beautifully and can be cut into other shapes.

Best to make day ahead and fry fresh and serve immediately.

Recipe notes

This can be used as a base to a fish main dish, or any other protein for a more sophisticated take on the fry. You can also serve them with a spiced up mayonnaise.
