Notes
  1. This is a versatile base recipe for chickpea fritters.
  2. You can replace the onion with eg. red onions, spring onion etc. Substitute the cilantro with any raw vegetable. I didn't have cilantro and used red and green pepper instead.
  3. I enjoy stronger flavours and this basic recipe needs a bit more zing according to my palette. Add a selection of herbs that suit your families taste.
