Chickpea Patties



Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Sauté onion, capsicum and celery for 5 minutes, until softened. Remove from heat.

Place chickpeas in a food processor with the onion mixture. Pulse until chickpeas are roughly chopped.

Place chickpeas in a bowl and add spices, hot sauce and parsley. Mix well. Add flour and cornstarch and mix well. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium to high heat.

Shape chickpea mixture to form patties. If you are having trouble forming patties, add more cornstarch. Fry in batches for a few minutes each side, until crispy and browned. Flip a few times if they are browning too quickly.
