I was wondering if anyone knows if we can have chickpea flour? I found a recipe and wanted to try it. If we cant have it is there a good replacement?
Garlic and caramelized onion bhaji s
2 table spoons olive oil
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 1/4 cups of chickpeas flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of water
Heat half oil in a nonstick skillet, add onions, garlic, and cumin and fry for 5-6 min. Stir in cilantro.
Meanwhile mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and water. Set aside for 10 min, then stir in the onion mixture.
Heat a little of the remaining oil in the skillet, add spoonfuls of the onion mixture, fry for 2-3 min, flip halfway through cooking.January 18, 2012 at 9:30 am #71098
Would not use it USDA site says that one cup of chickpea flour has 53.19 carbs. Way to much. Sorry for posting it 🙂January 18, 2012 at 11:56 am #71113

Oooooh Lauren you’re such a tease haha!! It sounds delicious… I wonder if any of the other flours we have on the list can be substituted in? Maybe the Teff, which I haven’t managed to find yet? Have you got some?January 18, 2012 at 4:16 pm #71118

Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans and are a phase 2 item if I’m not mistaken. It might be an OK thing to eat later in your recovery…
Here is a link to some online places to buy teff flour:January 22, 2012 at 8:58 am #71333

Millet flour would work it has a thicker consistency. Soghurum Flour is a little finer so it would produce a finer/ lighter product. I think both are on the stage 2 list. Although Chickpea flour is thick so maybe millet would be a better bet.May 8, 2012 at 1:58 pm #81277

Dont use it also chick peas are known for promoting estrogen. Try to find a alternative flour.
