How to Make Spinach and Chickpea Fritters

Step-by-Step

  1. Whisk the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl. Add water and whisk until smooth. Add the next 4 ingredients to the batter and mix to combine- breaking up the spinach.
  2. Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep heavy-bottomed pot until a thermometer reaches 325^. Working in batches, drop heaping Tablespoonfuls of batter into the oil- do not crowd. Cook until lightly golden, about 2 minutes, turning as needed.
  3. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a paper-towel lined plate. Cool slightly, then gently press each fritter into a small disk, about 1/3 inch thick.
    Return the flat fritter to the hot oil and fry until crisp and golden brown, about 1 minute. Season with salt and serve with chutney.
