Description

Karentika is a traditional Algerian dish that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or as a snack. It has an omelet-like consistency and is often served on a baguette with Harissa, a North African chili paste. This recipe for Karentika follows the traditional preparation and is made with chickpea flour. The batter does require refrigeration for at least hours and is best made the night before. For individually sized portions, use a muffin tin. Bake time is 30 minutes. Serve with Harissa or sun-dried tomatoes.
