Chickpea fries, also known as Panelle or Panisse, are as good as, maybe even better than, French fries. Even though they require two steps — making the chickpea porridge, then shaping and frying — they’re not much more difficult and are far more reliable. You can produce them ahead of time and flavor them in at least a dozen different ways, serving them with just about any sauce you like.
