Ingredients
1 carrot
1/4 grated zucchini
400g can chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoons mild paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 egg
1/3 cup dried breadcrumbs, plus more if you want to crumb them
1/4 cup oil, for cooking



Method

Combine drained chickpeas, minced garlic, egg, herbs, spices, and breadcrumbs in a food processor.

Grate the carrot and zucchini into a bowl and mix in the paste.



Place the mixture in refrigerator for 1 hr to firm up.
