Garantita is a popular Algerian street food item that is consumed as a snack and prepared as a kind of cake or tart. The dough is made with a combination of chickpea flour, oil, spices, and water. It is then covered with a beaten egg and baked in the oven until it develops a golden-brown color on top.

Garantita is typically served hot, dressed with harissa and cumin. It is believed that the name of this street snack is derived from the Spanish caliantetorta.

Garantita has a flan texture and it is usually sold by street vendors over a good French baguette with cumin and Harissa, that Maghrebi hot chili pepper paste. This is a very cheap dish in Algeria but yet very filling and yummy.
