Method

  1. Pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper. Tip into a food processor along with the onion, garlic, parsley, spices, flour and a little salt. Blend until fairly smooth, then shape into four patties with your hands.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, add the burgers, then quickly fry for 3 mins on each side until lightly golden. Serve with toasted pittas, tomato salsa and a green salad.

Really surprised by how nice they were, even my really fussy housemate finished them!

I agree with 'chanters', the onion quantity was missing from the list. I added half an onion and it worked out well. the dish was marvellous and i will definetley cook it again.

Am I being daft or is the onion quantity missing from the list of ingredients? It says to add onion etc in the method section...

I could be going mad too because I remember making these before and they were delicious but for the life of me can't decide whether I included onion or not!

Really good, I found it easier to mash the chickpeas with hand, using a fork, then using a blender for the rest and mixing it all together. Tastes very good!!

I will never buy ready made again. So quick, easy and tasty. It took longer to wash the food processor up than make these :)
