Chickpea French Fries

The Joys of Eating Panisses

When I was a small child my mother used to cook chickpea French fries, (better known as panisses) for me all the time. They are the perfect snack food. They are crispy on the outside and super creamy on the inside. Panisses make a great accompaniment for roast chicken, lamb, beef, and seafood. You can even sprinkle them with sugar and enjoy them as a sweet.

My earliest attempt at cookery began with the filleting of my sister's goldfish at age 2 and cooking my pet rabbits by age 7. Life has been downhill ever since.
