  • STEP 1
    Mash or process the chickpeas and put to one side. Grate or process the bread to fine crumbs. Add to chickpeas.
  • STEP 2
    Add all other ingredients to the bowl and mix together.
  • STEP 3
    Wet hands (stops mixture sticking) and form balls (in any size you want) flatten slightly and put on some greaseproof paper. Put the patties in the fridge till slightly chilled.
  • STEP 4
    Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan to a medium to high heat. Fry 3 or 4 patties at a time till brown on both sides. Set aside on kitchen paper.
  • STEP 5
    Serve hot/warm or cold with toasted pittas or warm tortillas. I usually finely slice red cabbage and have some mayo and pickled chillies too. Maybe a gherkin. Delicious!
