Method

 
Gently fry the chopped garlic and red onion in the olive oil until translucent.

Add the ground chili, cumin and coriander to the pan and roast the spices for about 1 minute.

Drain the chickpeas and place into a food processor together with the flour, fresh coriander, ground cumin and coriander, chopped chili, salt and pepper. Pulse about 4 times – so that the mixture is not quite a paste. Blitz to a smooth paste if you prefer. Check for seasoning and fold in the diced beetroot.

Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts.  Roll each quarter into a ball and flatten with your hand to form a nicely shaped patty. Fry in a non-stick pan until cooked through.
