Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 can chickpea drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Yogurt Dill Dip:
  • 1/2 cup Balkan-style plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Yogurt Dill Dip:
Line sieve with cheesecloth and set over bowl; add yogurt. Let drain in refrigerator for 1 hour. Discard liquid; scrape yogurt into small bowl. Stir in dill, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Meanwhile, in skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and cumin, stirring, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in parsley; set aside.

In food processor, puree chickpeas until smooth. Transfer to large bowl; mix in onion mixture, egg, flour, salt and pepper. Form by heaping tablespoonfuls (15 mL) into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties.

In large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; fry patties, in batches and turning once, until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towel-lined plate. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Arrange in single layer on baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Reheat in 375°F/190°C oven for 6 to 7 minutes.)

Serve patties with yogurt dill dip.
