Ingredients

  • 1 cups Kabuli Chana / Chickpeas
  • 1 cup Onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup Garlic chopped
  • 1 cup Potatoes boiled and mashed
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Peppercorns
  • 1 tsp Coriander Seeds
  • 1 tsp Mint dried
  • 1 tsp Oregano dried

Instructions

  • Wash and soak the dried chickpeas overnight or for 8 hours. When ready to pressure cook, change the water couple of times, then take the chana in the pressure cooker along with salt, cloves, garlic and dried thyme. Pressure cook for 4 to 5 whistles or till done. Let the pressure fall down, before draining the chickpeas.
  • Remove the spices, drain the chickpea, reserve the cooked water. Once the chickpea is cooled down, you can remove the skin off by popping each chickpea. What I did was to mash it with the potato masher, the peels come out naturally. Pick it out and discard. I left most of the skin intact as that adds to the volume.
  • Microwave 2 medium potatoes, peel and mash into the chickpea. I pulsed it a couple of times to get the smooth dough.
  • Heat a nonstick pan, cook finely chopped onions, garlic in 2 tbsp of olive oil until tender and translucent. Set aside.
  • Now cook the smooth chickpea, potato dough with 2 tsp of reserved water, for 10 mins. Next, add the sauteed onions mix to this and combine everything well.
  • Pulse the spices to get a coarse powder, add to the dough and mix well.
  • Heat a nonstick pan with 2 tsp oil.
  • When you are ready to make the fritters, scoop out small balls, flatten and place on the hot oil. Cook on low flame to ensure the fritters are cooked well.
