  • 1/4 tsp black salt (available at Indian grocers, optional)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp dill, dried or freshly chopped
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup swiss chard, finely chopped
  • 1 cup onion or shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsps olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a wide cast iron pan (recommended) or cake pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine chickpea flour, sea salt, black salt, turmeric, baking powder, dill and cayenne pepper and stir. Add water and whisk until no lumps remain. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and let the batter rest.
  3. Add chopped greens, herbs and sliced onions to the batter. Stir well and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, uncovered until batter is set and top is beginning to crack and brown a bit. Drizzle top with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and gently brush on. Return to oven for 5 more minutes.
  4. Remove and let cool a bit before slicing and serving.
