Ingredients:  1 cup dried chickpeas (or 16 oz. can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans) * 1 large onion (chopped) * 2 cloves garlic (chopped) * 3 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped) * 1 teaspoon coriander * 1 teaspoon cumin * 2 tablespoons flour * 1 teaspoon salt (to taste) * Pepper (to taste) * Oil (for frying)


1.    Gather the ingredients.

2.    Place dried chickpeas in a bowl, covering with cold water. Allow to soak overnight. Omit this step if using canned beans.

3.    Drain chickpeas, and place in pan with fresh water, and bring to a boil.

4.    Allow to boil for 5 minutes, then let simmer on low for about an hour.

5.    Drain and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

6.    Combine chickpeas, garlic, onion, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper (to taste) in medium bowl. Add flour.
