• 2 cups chickpea flour
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil (you can use vegetable or canola also)
  • 2 -3 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 1 1/2-2 teaspoons cumin
  • To serve
  • 4 tablespoons harissa
  • 2 large French baguettes
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • 2 Place all your ingredients (except the egg & those required to serve!) in a large blender / liquidizer – you may need to do this in 2 batches —
  • 3 Liquidize the mixture until it is frothy & completely smooth.
  • 4 Pour this batter into a 7″ x 11″ rectangular pan – I like to use my pyrex dish.
  • 5 Whisk the egg, then pour over the top of the batter.
  • 6 Cook for around 45 minutes or until the top is lightly golden but the middle is still slightly squishy / sloppy (unless you like it firmer, in which case cook it 5 – 10 minutes more).
  • 7 Slice the garantita into 8 pieces (a large, wide spatula or cake knife is useful for this!)
  • 8 Cut each baguette into 1/4's, then split open & remove a little of the inner bread.
  • 9 Spread the bottom of each 1/4 of baguette with 1/2 tbsp of the harissa & lay the garantita on top. Sprinkle with a little cumin then cover with the top of the baguette – to make a sandwhich.
  • 10 Eat whilst hot & enjoy a taste sensation!
  • 11 If you have any Selecto to drink, it makes the perfect accompanyment!
