Chickpea flour is commonly found in most grocery stores. It is also known as chana flour, garbanzo bean flour, and besan. It is a great, gluten-free option and a source of protein.
Serve with 1 cup cooked rice.
1⁄2 cauliflower head
1 1⁄2 cups chickpea flour
2 tbsp oil
2–4 tbsp water
Toppings (optional): Za’atar Seasoning spiced yogurt, chopped cilantro, Roasted Garlic Aioli
- Preheat air fryer to 375° F.
- Using a box grater, coarsely grate carrot, zucchini, and cauliflower. Place in a large bowl. Toss with seasoning, flour, and oil. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until a thick, wet batter has formed.
- Use two spoons to scoop batter (about 2 tbsp per scoop) into air fryer basket. Cook 8–10 min, flipping halfway, until pakoras are crispy and cooked through. Depending on the size of your air fryer basket, you may have to cook in two batches to not overcrowd pakoras.
- Serve with toppings, if desired.
