Servings 2


  • air fryer


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup besan or chickpea flour sifted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin


  • Prepare a 7" square pan by brushing it with vegetable oil.
  • In a small-medium saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the cumin and stir. Now slowly stream in the chickpea flour, using a whisk and whisking all the time.
  • Once all the flour is added, reduce the heat and continue to cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth and thick.
  • Pour the hot mixture into the prepared pan, and smooth the top as best you can.
  • Place in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight to set.
  • Remove from the fridge when set, and turn out onto a cutting board. Cut into "fries."
  • Preheat your airfryer to 400, and arrange the fries on the fryer basket. Spritz with oil the parts that don't have any oil on them.
  • Fry for 10 minutes, then shake/flip and cook for 5 minutes more.
  • Remove from fryer, season while hot and serve with a drizzle of balsamic reduction or pomegranate molasses. I serve mine with vegan aioli for dipping.
