Karantita is Algerian dish made from chickpea flour. This dish is one of the favourite in Algeria and is made in every family. It usually served hot, spread on baguette with harissa sauce and sprinkled with cumin on top. Karantita has different names, such as karane, guarantita, kalantita and quaratita.
