  • 1/2 cup Chickpea flour besan/garbanzo bean flour. You can also use garbanzo-fava bean flour
  • 1/3 cup well mashed roasted Kabocha squash or any other squash or 1/3 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ranch seasoning Garlic, Onion, Dill, Parsley, Chives and a touch of Pepper. or other spices of choice)
  • black pepper to taste


  • In a bowl or directly in the pan, add all the ingredients and whisk.
  • Heat the pan on low-medium heat and keep whisking to combine all the ingredients.
  • Whisk for 4-6 minutes until the batter starts get thick and stiff. You will be able to feel the stiffness and the batter will not move easily.
  • Drop the stiff batter onto parchment or greased sheet. Spread the batter quickly using a greased spatula keeping it 1/4-1/2 inch thick and let set for an hour in refrigerator.
  • Cut the set batter into strips. (At this point, the strips can be frozen. Thaw and proceed to grill/bake.)
  • Then either bake or pan fry or grill. Brush a little oil on the fries to grill.
  • Pan fry for 2-3 minutes each side on medium-high heat.
  • For Baked: Broil on Low for 4-5 minutes then broil on High for half a minute to a minute(depends on how crisp you want the fries). The fries can be baked or grilled without oil too.
  • I sprinkled some cajun spice on them and served with sriracha.
