"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Panelle
Chickpea Fritters
(Panelle)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
3 cups water
2 cups chickpea flour
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
2 and 1/4 to 2 and 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Special equipment:
Parchment paper
Deep-fat thermometer
 
Directions:
 
Lightly oil an 8 by 4-inch loaf pan (6-cup capacity) and line with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang at each end.

Whisk together water, chickpea flour, sea salt, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 2 and 1/2 to 3-quart heavy saucepan until smooth, then cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon (to prevent lumps from forming), until very thick and mixture pulls away from side of pan, 20 to 25 minutes.

Transfer mixture to loaf pan, smoothing top.

Cool, uncovered, then chill, surface of mixture covered with plastic wrap, until firm, at least 3 hours.

Lift chickpea block out of pan using parchment and transfer to a work surface.

Gently flip over block and discard parchment, then pat dry.

Cut block crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices for panelle.

Preheat oven to 300F.

Heat 1/2 inch olive oil (about 2 cups) in a deep 10-inch heavy skillet until it registers 375F on thermometer, then fry panelle in 5 batches, carefully turning occasionally with tongs, until golden and puffed, 3 to 5 minutes per batch, and transfer to paper towels to drain.

Keep warm on a baking sheet in oven while frying remaining batches.

Arrange panelle on a platter and sprinkle with parsley and cheese.

Serve immediately. Makes 10 servings.

Note: Panelle can be fried 4 hours ahead and kept, uncovered, at room temperature.

Reheat on a baking sheet in a preheated 350F oven 10 to 15 minutes.
