Eat in Boston: Chickpea Bites
“These are part of a section of the menu we call ‘snacks’— something to have a few bites of while we’re preparing your starters and main course. It’s a wicked-easy recipe: Chickpea flour is used to make batter, which you season with Parmesan, lemon juice, and cayenne—mainstream ingredients that go really well together. The key is to get a really nice fry on them, so they’re crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. When I was growing up, my mother and grandmother were always standing over the stove pan-frying something, so to me it’s second nature. The fun part about this recipe is that you can cut the batter into whatever size and shape pieces you want.”
