Green Chickpea Pancakes
Rudely Alternative. Five ingredients. Five steps.
I love these pancakes. I eat them straight out of the pan like traditional pancakes topped with a fried egg, some flash fried vegetables and cheese. Or I keep them in the fridge, heat them up gently in a pan and use them like wraps or instead of chapatis for dipping into curries. Iâve included some topping ideas below. â Anna Jones
