  • Place the muffin tin in pre-heated oven. Bake at 150C for 20 – 25 minutes or until puffed up and light golden brown. Let muffin tin sit for 5 minutes before removing.


Baking time may vary depending on the size of the tin, so adjust it accordingly. 
Leftover frittatas can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 
Adjust seasoning to your taste. 
Ensure not to skip baking powder to prevent frittatas from being dense. 
You may need little or more water to make chickpea batter. The amount of water required depends on the quality of the flour. So just add as much as required.
