Gluten Free Courgette Chickpea Fritters


These tasty fritters are made using chickpea flour and are quick and easy to prepare as a snack, starter or light meal.
They’re also gluten-free which is a bonus for those looking to avoid it. The courgettes were prepared by using a spiraliser but they can be shredded with a grater or food processor.



  1. Combine the flour, salt and spice mix in a bowl. Gradually stir in some water until it is a thick batter.
    Do this slowly with a wooden spoon until you reach the right consistency.
    Set aside for a few minutes while you prepare the courgettes and onion.
  2. Grate or spiralise the courgette and thinly slice the spring onion.  Add these to the batter and gently mix so that everything is coated.
  3. Heat some vegetable oil (about 1 cm deep) in a heavy-based wide pan.  Carefully form some of the mix on a spoon and slide into the hot oil.
    Fry on both sides for 2 or 3 minutes.
  4. Test the first one to ensure it has cooked through.
  5. Drain on kitchen paper and serve with a crisp salsa of tomato and cucumber or a dipping sauce of your choice.
