500 grams chickpeas (soaked overnight in salted water, 1 tablespoon salt)

1 onion, grated

1 tablespoon mint, finely chopped

1 tablespoon dill, finely chopped

1 cup plain flour

2 large ripe tomatoes, grated

1 teaspoon Gewürzhaus Sweet Paprika

1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped

4 cloves crushed garlic

How to Cook

Soak the chickpeas in salted water overnight.

Drain and wash the chickpeas well, and in a pot add new water and boil chickpeas until the chickpea can be squished between your fingers. Approx 30mins. Drain water.

Using a food processor or wooden spoon mix chickpeas well until it resembles a paste.  Add the onion, herbs, tomato, paprika, oil and season well. Add the flour slowly mixing well as you go until the mixture looks like a very thick paste. Cover and refrigerator for about one hour to rest.

Heat extra olive oil in a frypan and add large tablespoons of the chickpea mixture, cooking on both sides until golden, about 8-10 minutes.  Do not overcrowd the frypan.  Place cooked fritters on absorbent paper while cooking the rest of the mixture.

Arrange fritters on a serving platter with Garlic Lovers Spiced Tzatziki and drizzle a squeeze of lemon over and serve at room temperature.

Garlic Lovers Spiced Tzatziki

Drain the yoghurt in a sieve lined with absorbent paper towels or muslin for about an hour.

Place yoghurt into a bowl and add all other ingredients season to taste, stir, cover and place in refrigerator until needed. Serve with pita, homemade naan, or fresh crusty bread.
