Chickpea Pancakes

Chickpea Pancakes

These work brilliantly as wraps, they’re packed with bone-building goodness from chickpeas and sesames, so perfect food for growing people. Add any cold meat/veg/cheese/avocadoes from fridge and roll up.


  • 1 ½  Cups Gram Flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • sea salt


Add a little of the water to the flour in a bowl, and whisk to a paste, then add the remaining water and both oils til a smooth batter. Sprinkle in the seeds.

Heat some oil in a small frying pan, on high. Ladle some batter in when hot, swirl batter to edges of pan. When bubbles appear flip, cook for a couple of minutes on the other side. Serve alongside meat dish instead of bread, or use as wrap, and for picnics.

Great freezer food too.

  1. Hi, the recipe look fab, if using a small 20cm diameter, how many pancakes will this amount of mixture make?

    I was wondering if they would work as an accompaniment to an Indian meal instead of chappatis or naan bread?

    • Lizzie King

      Yes, absolutely they would work amazingly with an Indian dish as they are from there originally! They should make about 8-10.

  2. ps I have only been able to source white sesame seeds, are the black seeds a speciality sesame seed?
