I am seriously upping my breakfast game this week with these chickpea flour veggie pancakes! While you could eat them just as they are, with your favorite dip or chutney. For a more filling meal,  I like to serve them as a sandwich between two slices of vegan toast or my favorite homemade whole wheat sandwich bread and some vegan Ranch or Mayo or my vegan hollandaise! Best breakfast sandwich ever.

The pancakes are made with gluten-free chickpea flour which is a high protein flour with a light yellow color that you find in most baking aisles these days. It is also known as garbanzo bean flour. Both refer to flour made from ground white chickpeas.  Due to its fine texture it can quite easily form lumps. That’s why it’s important to store chickpea flour in a sealed container at room temperature.

Note that besan and Chickpea flour are not the same! Besan or gram flour is a flour of chana dal or split brown chickpeas. Chickpea flour or garbanzo flour is ground-up white chickpeas. Similar flavors, but not the same flour. Besan need less liquid than white chickpea flour to make a batter.  Read more here about the differences and where to use which flour!

We also add some rice flour to make these savory patties a bit lighter and crispier, but you can also add fine semolina flour. This batter can also be used to make waffles like my pakora waffles!

Ingredients for savory veggie pancakes:

  • chickpea flour: make sure your flour has no lumps or if so, break them with a fork before measuring the flour
  • rice flour makes them crispy
  • baking soda for that perfect rise
  • chopped veggies: onion, zucchini, bell pepper, cauliflower, and shredded carrots. I also like to add some spinach or chard in these
  • Indian sulfur salt (kala namak) adds that eggy taste and turmeric that golden color
  • oil: any neutral oil with a high smoke point is perfect
  • optional vegan cheese shreds for a cheesy pancake

Tips & Substitutions:

  • besan flour can be used instead of chickpea flour
  • use whatever veggies and fresh herbs you have at home but make sure to chop them finely for best texture and even cooking times.
  • vegan cheese shreds are a great way to make these more savory. You might want to add less salt to the batter if you are adding cheese
  • Glutenfree: the pancakes are Glutenfree , use gf bread or gf flatbread to make breakfast sandwiches or wraps
