Chickpea Noodles people!
These noodles are just chickpea flour and water. They use a similar process as chickpea tofu, just spread out the custard instead. Let it set for 15 minutes, slice it into desired shapes. These noodles are gluten, grain, starch, yeast, nut, dairy, soy and egg-free! If you are wondering where they came from. Think fusion Khandvi 🙂
The easy garlic tomato sauce works perfectly with the noodles or any pasta of choice. Garlicky, slightly spicy and versatile.
The batter also can be used to make chickpea tofu. Drop the custard into a pan, spread with a spatula, let it set for an hour. Cube and store.
Yum to the yum!
