{Chickpea Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce}












Chickpea Fries


            4 
cups water


            2
 cups chickpea flour


            1
 tablespoon kosher salt


            1
 teaspoon cumin (optional)


            2 
cups
vegetable oil


            Sumac, for
dusting




  1. Place the water in a pot with the salt and bring to a
    boil. Add the cumin to the chickpea flour. Pour into the water and whisk
    vigorously until all of the water is absorbed and there are no lumps, about 2-3
    minutes. You are looking for the consistency of polenta. Take the pot off the
    heat. There should be plenty of salt but now is the time to taste and make
    sure. These fries are all about the salt.

  2. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or wax paper. Pour the
    chickpea mixture onto the baking sheet and spread evenly. Set aside to firm for
    about 30 minutes.

  3. After thirty minutes, take a knife and gently cut the
    mixture into rectangular pieces. Use your judgement as to the size.

  4. Add the vegetable oil to a deep pan. Turn the heat to
    medium high. Once the oil is hot enough (you will get a nice sizzle) add some
    fries (about 8 at a time) and cook until they are golden brown and crispy on
    the outside. Take them out and place on a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle
    lightly with sumac. Transfer to dish and serve immediately.
