3 c
cooked chick peas, i used canned..rinsed and drained

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook potao in salted water until tender, Drain and set aside.
Heat the oil in a fry pan, add onion, pepper, garlic, tomato and cumin. Cook over medium heat until lightly browned and dry.....3 - 5 mins.
Stir in tomato, paste, parsley, cilantro,, chickpeas and potato. Simmer for a few mins....add s/p and cayenne to taste.Let mixture cool to room temperture. Coarsely puree the chick pea mixture in a food processor....add bread crumbs to thicken. Run in bursts and don't over process. Wet hands and form into patties. Arrange on a plate and cover with saran wrap. Now it said to chill for 3 hours to set up but i didn't as it was dinner time and we were hungry!! LOl I cooked them right away in a hot pan with a little olive oil. I cooked them until they were brown and crispy on each side. They are already cooked anyway so you are just browning them.

NOTE:
After refrigerating the extra ones and cooking the next day I didn't notice any difference in texture or setting up.
