  • 100 g chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 150 ml water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp white flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil for frying


  • Combine all the ingredients (except breadcrumbs and vegetable oil) in a large bowl. The mixture should be compact and only slightly sticky. If too sticky, add a little flour.
  • Divide the mixture in 4 portions and form 4 balls.
  • Put breadcrumbs into a bowl, place a ball on top and press with your fingers in order to form a cutlet (about 3-4 mm thick). Flip to cover with breadcrumbs.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining balls.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Fry the cutlets on both sides for about 2-3 minutes. Serve hot. Enjoy!
