This is a cross between a mini vegan frittata, a vegetable pakora and saag aloo.

I've added pictures.

They were lovely warm from the oven but were dry when cold so I heated them up. I think adding some tomato may make them better when cold.

They look lovely! Nice idea to do individual mini frittata. Is it using chickpea flour rather than eggs which makes it dry out, do you think?

Yes, as they cool they go a bit bready. I think adding tomatoes to add moisture or add more potato/onion/spinach so the chickpea batter is the glue holding them together - as done with pakoras - might help. Or maybe just make a smaller batch and eat them fresh. They went down very well in my house so I'll be experimenting with them.
