Panelle in a bread roll

Panelle (or panella di ceci) are Sicilian fritters made from chickpea flour and other ingredients. They are a popular street food in Palermo and are often eaten between slices of bread or on a roll, like a sandwich.

Panelle are very similar to the panisse of Nice.[1]

Panelle are believed to be of Arab origin. They are called panella or paneddi in Sicilian.
