A savory instead of sweet crêpe made with garbanzo bean flour and spices.



Mix together all ingredients, except oil, in a bowl to make a batter of crêpe consistency.

Coat a cast-iron griddle or a heavy-bottomed sauté pan with oil and place over medium-high heat.

Measure out 1/4 cup batter and pour evenly across the pan. Cover with a lid and let cook for 2 minutes. Flip crêpe over and cook on the other side for 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve crêpe with cilantro-mint chutney, mango chutney or ketchup.
