Recipe for Zucchini and Chickpea Pancakes

Recipe Ingredients:
3 med  Zucchini, or about 4 cups shredded)
Zucchini flowers (optional, just adds color)
  Coriander (flavor)
  Basil (flavor)
1 cup  Chickpea flour
1 tsp  Salt
1 tsp  Garam Masala
1/2 tsp  Hot red chili powder
1/2 tsp  Curry powder
  Olive oil for cooking

Cooking Directions:
1.  Finely shred the zucchini. Julienne the zucchini flowers and the herbs. Put all into a large bowl; add the salt, spices and the chickpea flour. Mix well - the moisture that comes out of the zucchini may be enough to turn this into a batter, but if not add a tiny bit of water, just so that it turns moist but not runny.

2.  Heat up a small non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add some olive oil and spread around. Put in about half of the batter and spread around to form a circle. Cook for about 5 minutes, then turn and cook for another 5 minutes or so, until it's cooked all the way through.

3.  Cut into wedges, and serve hot or at room temperature.
