Panisses with pebrontata for person

Panisses (chickpea chips) are Nice’s answer to the potato chip. Juniper berries give the pebronata, similar to Italian peperonata, a distinctly Corsican flavour.

Ingredients for Panisses with pebrontata

Panisses with pebrontata, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Place chickpea flour, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper in a large, heavy-based pan. Gradually whisk in 1.25 litres (5 cups) cold water until smooth, then whisk continuously and vigorously over medium heat for 10 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in olives and parmesan, then spoon into an oiled 25cm x 34cm shallow pan. Level top with a wet spatula and scatter over thyme. Leave for 30 minutes at room temperature to cool and set.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, for pebronata, heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add tomatoes, capsicums and juniper berries, if using, and cook for 15 minutes. Add wine and simmer for 10 minutes or until sauce has slightly thickened. Stir in vinegar. Season.
  • Step 3
    Preheat oven to 150°C. Cut chickpea mixture widthwise into 4, then cut each length into 16 ‘chips’, about 1.5cm x 8.5cm, to make 64 chips.
  • Step 4
    Heat 2.5cm oil with garlic in a frying pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, discard the garlic. Fry the chips, in 3 batches, for 1 1/2 minutes each side or until golden. Drain on paper towel and keep warm in the oven while frying the remaining chips.
  • Step 5
    Serve panisses with pebronata.

Notes:
