DIRECTIONS

  • INSTRUCTIONS.
  • Wash chickpeas and pick over to remove foreign matter and discoloured chickpeas.
  • Soak chickpeas in water for at least 4 hours (or overnight if possible).
  • Place all dry ingredients in a large mortar & pestle and grind until well blended.
  • Add fresh herbs to mortar and grind well.
  • Add tomato paste and oil to mortar and mix well.
  • Wash and drain chickpeas and place in food processor with onions and 150mls of cold water (or stock). Blend until well crushed but not to a paste.
  • Add herb and spice mixture to processor and blend with chickpea mixture.
  • Transfer chickpea mixture to a bowl and add eggs and grated parmesan cheese and mix well (beat eggs lightly before mixing through).
  • Add flour and mix through until the mixture is thick but can still fall off the spoon (slightly runny). Then stand for about 30 minutes so flavours blend together.
  • Spray frying pan with cooking oil and heat to medium heat.
  • Place dollops of the mixture into the frying pan and cook both sides until golden, turning once only. (Cook in batches ensuring pan is wiped and re oiled between batches).
  • For vegetarian use vegetable bouillon only or a vegetarian fake chicken flavor only.
