Garbanzo bean fritters

This is very much similar to falafel found in mid-east cuisines..I have made this in an Indianized way..It is easy and quick to prepare and also serves as a tea time snack..It is nutritious as it is loaded with proteins..

           

Ingredients

Garbanzo beans / Chick peas - 2 cups
Onion - 1 small sized
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
All purpose flour / Corn flour - 2 tablespoons
Garlic - 3 cloves
Coriander leaves chopped - 3 tablespoons
Oil for frying
Salt to taste

Directions

Soak the chickpeas overnight..You can also use canned chickpeas instead..
Drain the water and pressure cook the chickpeas until they turn soft..
Drain the water and combine with the onion, garlic, salt, coriander powder and cumin powder and blend it in a mixie to a coarse paste..
Add flour and chopped coriander leaves and make into small balls..
Fry them for about 5 minutes until they turn golden brown..
Serve with tea or with hummus and pita bread..
