Middle Eastern Recipe

20 Mins

Nutrition Facts

  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 400g can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs


Heat half of the oil in a large pan, then turn the heat down low and add the onion and garlic. Fry for 6-7 minutes until they’re nice and soft. The 28cm frying pan from our handy and stylish Retro 5 Piece Pan Set is a perfect choice for this recipe!


In a large mixing bowl, combine the chickpeas, cumin, and coriander, then add in the garlic and onion. Break the mixture down by mashing it with a fork. Keep going until the chickpeas are completely broken down.


Stir in the parsley and mixed herbs, then add the egg. Combine the mixture with your hands until it has bound together fully.


Form the mix into 6 balls and then flatten slightly into patties. Add the remaining oil to the pan and then fry the 6 patties on a medium heat for around 6 minutes, flipping halfway through. They should be a nice golden-brown colour with a firm texture.
