  1. In a food processor, whizz the chickpeas with the egg for a few mins until almost a purée, but some bits remain. Spoon into a bowl and stir in the mince, spices, two-thirds of the garlic, the chilli and coriander. Season well and form into 12 small fritters.

  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the fritters in batches for 4 mins on each side, until crisp on the outside and cooked through.

  3. Top each wrap with a good handful of shredded lettuce, tomato, red onion and 3 fritters. Mix the yogurt with the remaining garlic and spoon a little over the fritters. Wrap up and tuck in, with chips on the side, if you like.

Made these for my husband, daughter and myself tonight. My 3 year old daughter loved the frittas but we found them really dry and fairly tasteless. If I were to make them again they would need a lot more spice and flavour and possibly not cooked for quite as long.

Really enjoyed these however could get away with adding more chillies for an extra kick. We also added cucumber and a few chives to our yoghurt side for a bit of extra texture. Really quick to cook though.

These were really easy to make and tasted delicious. I only used 1 400g can of chickpeas with the same measure of all the other ingredients and still made 12 fritters. My husband wasn't as keen on them - 'not meaty enough' he said - but I would still make them again.

Quick easy recipe that all the family loved. This is a definite Friday night meal instead of a takeaway.

Very quick and easy to make. They didn't fall apart when cooking and made a good filling for wraps. I used beef mince as couldn't get hold of lamb mince.

Lovely fritters and a good way of stretching meat that bit further using pulses. My family liked them, I'll be making these again.

I cooked this recipe for my three sons aged 12, 10 and 7. It was very easy to make and looked good arranged on the tortilla, much like the photograph. Two of my boys said it was delicious, like restaurant food, while the 10 year old said it was weird and dry. Sadly he got down from the table. The other two loved it and asked to have it again. I did not try it as I am a vegetarian, but it did look good.

Add some more chillies to the fritters before frying for an extra kick and you can always add mint and cucumber to the yoghurt
