How to do:

  1. Steam the chick pea until soft.
  2. Put everything into the blender machine and start blending with adding little water at a time if the mixture is too dry.
  3. Do not add too much water until it become a puree. Try to make it as dry as possible as long as the blender is able to blend everything and mix it all together.
  4. Start shaping the patties, or you can do it in a ball shape. Each patty is about 15-20g.
  5. Heat up the oil and start deep fry it.
