Chickpea pancakes are awesome. They’ve been a staple breakfast here for a long time now – and we’ve experimented with all types of toppings. We decided it was time to share our favourites.

This is our original chickpea flour pancakes post. We love that recipe and we took things to another level.

Now we’re taking things to another nother level.

Our favourite new combo is caramelised onion with soft feta cheese. Be warned though – it’s addictive.

Since I first tried this ingredient mix I found myself making it day after day. Nipping out to the store to buy more chickpea flour when I had plenty of other flours still in the home.

It’s that tasty.

It’s simple as well.

Caramelised Onion and Chickpea Pancakes

All we’re going to do is caramelise the onions very gently with a little oil and water. We’ll also add a tiny amount (because we’re not too naughty 😉 ) of sugar to speed up the caramelisation process.

The salty feta cheese offsets this completely and is the perfect pairing.

The chickpea pancakes themselves are easy to cook – we want them thin and just a little crispy.

Make sure to pour the batter widely over a large pan. If you only have a small pan then make more pancakes, not thicker.

Thicker pancakes will taste heavy, and that’s not at all what we’re looking for – light and slightly crispy is the name of the game!

On one further note, chickpea pancakes are naturally gluten-free.

  • Cut the onions into half rings.
  • Grab a pot, set it to low heat. sauté the onions in a tsp of olive oil, and a splash of water. After a couple of minutes add the sugar. They’ll take about 10 minutes, stirring now and then.
  • Grab a bowl and add the chickpea flour, ginger powder and salt. Pour in the water while mixing the batter properly with a fork. If you have a whisk, use that.
  • Set a pan to medium heat, add olive oil and pour in half the batter.
  • Fry for about 5 minutes. Flip, then fry for another 3 minutes. The pancake should come out crispy(ish).
  • Once the pancakes are ready, plate them. Spread out caramelized onion and sprinkle feta over it, add some fresh basil on top to garnish. Finish it all off with a drizzle of lemon juice.
  • Give your loved one the warmer pancake and enjoy. 🙂

    Well, it’s freezing cold tonight here in the southern hemisphere, and these fabulous chickpea pancakes really hit the spot! I followed the recipe, except I didn’t have any basil. They would have been delicious made just to the recipe, but I also added some roast pumpkin pieces (about 1cm squares), a few green peas and little bit of roast capsicum. So good! That feta, lemon and onion combo, who knew?

    • Hoorah! (the recipe not the cold) – yay, so happy you enjoyed it as well. It’s surprisingly good, isn’t it? I was very pleasantly surprised the first time I tried the recipe too. Love the extras you added too, bet they were great!!
