  1. Chop vegetables and set aside. Allow to dry completely.
  2. Mix together garbanzo flour, spices, onion, chili, cilantro and water in a bowl. Add more water until batter has consistency of pancake batter.
  3. Heat oil to medium high (350-365°F.) Make oil 1" deep. Do not fry until oil is hot enough of vegetables will absorb the oil.
