3 Hr


5 Min


2 medium
potatoes , peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
2 tsp
olive oil
1 small
onion, finely diced
1 small
bell pepper, finely chopped...i used a jalapeno
3 clove
garlic, minced
1 medium
tomato, chopped with all the juices
1/2 tsp
ground cumin
3 Tbsp
tomato paste
1 1/2 Tbsp
chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1 1/2 Tbsp
chopped fresh cilantro
fresh pepper and a pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 c
dried bread crumbs...i used panko
3 c
cooked chick peas, i used canned..rinsed and drained

Directions Step-By-Step

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