How to make it

  • Brush six saucers with olive oil and set aside.
  • Pour chickpea flour in a steady stream into 4 cups cold salted water in a large, heavy saucepan, whisking as you pour to prevent lumps.
  • Cook over medium heat, whisking vigorously, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, still whisking, and pour batter into saucers.
  • Fill the saucers up to the rims, about 1⁄2" thick.
  • Cool at least 30 minutes, then gently slide batter off saucers and cut into "steak-fry" shapes, about 3⁄4" x 3" long.
  • Heat 1" olive oil/vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over high heat.
  • Fry in batches without crowding, turning often, until golden brown, about 5–7 minutes.
  • Drain, season with salt and pepper.

    Sounds lovely to me! There is an Italian dish called panissa that combines polenta with beans and is baked. I love that, too.
