Ingredients

  • 1 (fifteen-ounce) can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon coriander
  • 3/4 Teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • Canola oil (for frying) or vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions
