Recipe Method
1. Soak chick peas overnight in cold water. Tip the chick peas together with the water into a saucepan. Bring them up to the boil, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until they are absolutely tender. Drain well and mash them to a pulp. Add 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan and gently fry the onion and green pepper until softened; then beat them into the mashed chick peas together with all the remaining ingredients (except, the breadcrumbs and the sunflower oil). Taste and season with salt and pepper. 2. As soon as the mixture is cool enough to handle, form the mixture into 6 patties and coat each one with breadcrumbs. Put about 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the patties to a golden brown colour. 3. Serve them hot garnished with slices of raw Spanish onion and some natural live yoghurt.
