The aroma that fills the air while these crispy patties are being prepared will make you eager to bite into one. Offer them as an appetizer with tahini dip or in a pita wrap sandwich with chopped lettuce, tomato, radish, pickled turnips, and tahini sauce. Traditionally, skinless fava beans are combined with the garbanzos, but they vary so much from market to market that I have decided to leave them out.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Tahini, found in specialty markets or online.


    Prepare Ahead

    The raw patties can be frozen for several weeks. Freeze uncovered on a plastic-lined baking sheet, then transfer to an airtight container. Fry as directed without thawing.
