Crustless quiche

By Julia Shannahan (


Serves 4-6 | Prep 10 mins |

Cook 25 mins | Calories 235 (per serving)

225g (8oz) chickpea flour

1 ltr (1¾pt) cold water

1 tsp fresh ginger, finely grated

1½ tsp ground cumin

½ tsp turmeric

1 tsp chilli powder

4 tbsp vegetable oil

¼ tsp asafoetida

5-6 curry leaves (optional)

1 tsp sea salt

1 tbsp lemon juice a handful of coriander

2 green chillies, minced

1 Sieve the chickpea flour into a bowl. Slowly add the water a few tablespoons at a time. Stir as you do so, – a whisk works well to break up the lumps.

2 In a jug, mix the ginger, cumin, turmeric and chilli powder. Add 60ml (2floz) water and mix well.

3 Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. If using curry leaves, add now and fry for a minute or so. Add the asafoetida and fry for 30-60 seconds. Add the spices and fry for about 1 minute. Add the chickpea flour mixture and bring to a boil, stirring.

4 Turn the heat to medium-low and keep stirring with a wooden spoon until the mixture changes texture and seems to leave the sides of the pan. This should take about 20 minutes. Add the salt and lemon juice. Stir well. Taste the mixture – it should have a cooked taste.

5 Empty the mixture into a tin. Smooth over the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the coriander, minced chillies (to taste) and a sprinkling of sea salt over the top and allow to cool.

6 To serve, cut into squares or slices.

TIP You can also use this as a filling to make a more traditional pastry quiche.
