Socco - chickpea flatbread

Do you know about Socco? Do you make it yourself? I have seen recipes on the Internet, but never ate it before.

The basic recipe is a batter (chickpea flour, salt, black pepper, water and olive oil) that is baked and broiled in the oven. To make the recipe your own, you can add whatever spice you like or chopped herbs or onions, etc. (Chickpea flour is also called garbanzo bean flour.) 

One particular recipe mentions adding the Lebanese spice za'atar, that I do like:

Quote

Slice and serve. Use a flat spatula to work your way under the socca and ease it from the pan onto a cutting board. Slice it into wedges or squares, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and drizzle with more olive oil and sprinkle with the za'atar if using.

The chickpea flour was too expensive, so I hesitated to order through online shopping. A few days later I thought I will go ahead and order it. Too late. It was sold out. Will have to delay this recipe for some time.

Can you grind dried chickpeas into flour?

Maybe in batches using a coffee grinder? 

Yes, it's possible to grind them, in small batches, but it's very noisy though. If I had some dried chickpeas, I would cook them into yummy soups and stews!

Open the dough to a diameter of one centimeter with a rolling pin, mold it and place it on a Teflon tray or on grease proof paper. Turn on the oven for half an hour at 160 Centigrade (medium heat) before putting it in oven and place the tray on the top floor of the oven for 15 minutes.

I eat a gluten free diet and just came across this. I’ve never heard of this type of bread. What’s the origin? Can’t wait to try it as we have tons of chickpea flour. Also I love the za’atar addition in the recipe! 

I don’t have a cast iron skillet, could you recommend an alternative?

I don't have a cast iron skillet either. Maybe a nonstick baking pan? I never follow all the directions. :rolleyes:

The recipe said it was from Nice, France, but the za'atar is a Lebanese spice.

I tried this today and it was delicious and surprisingly moist!!! My dad bought gram flour by mistake a few months ago and wasn’t sure how to use it up. You can buy gram/ chickpea flour from south Asian/ Pakistani stores it’s a staple in their diet as it’s used for pakoras.

That's great! What kind of dish or pan did you cook it in? I bought the Chickpea flour, also labeled Besan. I have not made this yet, but I want to. I also keep looking at the cookie recipe by Ashvazdanghe, but I don't have powdered sugar.

 substitutes instead of 1 cup of confectionery sugar or powdered sugar: 1 cup of regular sugar + 1 tbsp of cornstarch, which are completely milled together and shaped into powder.

that you must have strong blender with wide blades that you must start process with low power then increase power ,when half of it became powder , stop it &shake half powdered sugar then continue blending with high power of blender.

Just a metal pizza dish which worked out ok. I had it with shakshuka, a Moroccan breakfast dish . Only thing is I used too much oil to coat the pan so I would use less oil if I was doing this again.
