2 medium sized tomatoes

1/2 onion

2 cloves of garlic

A cup of broccoli

4-5 mini peppers (or 1 regular bell pepper)

Two tablespoons of Sesame seeds (can be black or white sesame or a mix of both)

Oil to make the pancakes and a little oil brush (optional, it helps to control use)

Lemon - 1-2 tablespoons


Salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin powder, red chili powder (or cayenne)

Optional: Paprika (for the smokiness), Dry mango powder or amchur (instead of lemon)


Put the two cups of chickpea flour in a large bowl. Blend the tomatoes, onions and garlic in a blender and add it to the bowl. Mix it up and let it sit for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, it is time to add spices. Add the seasonings per taste. Start by adding a pinch of each of the seasonings listed above and then add more per taste.

Then start the cooking process by putting a pan on the gas at Medium heat. Grease it with oil so things don't stick. Use a little oil brush if you have one?
