Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Put into a food-processor bowl: 100 g chickpea (gram) flour, ½ teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon curry powder (optional) and 1 teaspoon cumin seeds.

Set the motor going and add the water a little at a time, until this makes a fairly firm dough.

Stage 2 - 10 min.
