Pudla – Chickpea Flour Pancake

This is a very tasty gluten free and egg less wrap made with chickpea flour. The mixture thickens to a spreadable consistency which I cooked thinly in my non-sticky frying pan with only little oil.

If you have problems flipping these, prepare smaller ones until you know the cooking point the right moment to flip them; they stick less then egg pancakes.

The addition of a few tablespoons finely grated carrots is another option.

We enjoyed them with a potatoes curry and some Greek yogurt.

The quantity of spices and herbs is up to you, you may also omit them in order to make eggless/gluten-free “Western”-pancakes.
