400g can of chickpeas
shake of cumin
parsley (I didn't have this)
a handful of fresh coriander1 tbsp flour for dusting your hands
I added a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Peel and finely chop or grate the onion, and grate the carrot. Fry together in a tablespoon of oil over a low heat for a few minutes until softened.
Tip into a large mixing bowl with the chickpeas, and add the chopped parsley and coriander, and a shake of cumin.
Mash it all together with a potato masher (or a fork) until the chickpeas have broken down into a mush. The oil from the carrots and onion will help combine the chickpeas together, but you may need to add a tiny bit more.
Flour your hands, and mould into golf ball shapes. Heat a little more oil in the sauté pan and fry until golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside.
