Boqueria Soho · Manhattan

Seamus Mullen learned how to make chickpea fritters at a French-Lebanese restaurant where he worked in college. These smoky, herbed fried chickpeas are a Spanish-inflected spin on that recipe.

  1. Canola oil, for frying
  2. 1/2 cup chickpea flour or rice flour
  3. 1 teaspoon hot pimentón de la Vera (smoked Spanish paprika)
  4. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  7. Salt
  8. One 15-ounce can chickpeas—drained, rinsed and dried well
  9. 1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley
  10. 1 tablespoon minced chives
  11. 1 tablespoon minced basil
  12. Lemon wedges, for serving
  1. In a large saucepan, heat 1 inch of oil to 375°. In a small bowl, mix the chickpea flour with the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, coriander and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Add the chickpeas and toss to coat; shake off any excess flour.
  2. Fry the chickpeas, in batches if necessary, until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Season with salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss the fried chickpeas with the parsley, chives and basil. Serve at once, with lemon wedges.
