Ingredients 9
Servings 12
Time 5 mins


  • 2
    tins of chickpeas, drained
  • 1
    small onion, peeled and cut in chunks
  • 2-3
    big cloves of garlic
  • 1
  • 2
    big handfuls of fresh coriander
  • 2
  • 1
    ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil


20 mins
Place all the ingredients, except the eggs in a food processor and blitz until everything is processed into a fine crumb like consistency. Add the 2 eggs and mix with the chickpea mixture. Allow to stand for about 5-10 minutes. Heat enough vegetable oil in a pan to be able to deep fry. Shape the mixture into smallish balls and fry them in batches until they are golden brown on the outside and moist and delicious on the inside. Serve in a warm pita bread with some fresh lettuce and minty yogurt(simply mix a cup of Greek Yogurt and some fresh mint).
