Fraiche Nutrition: Chickpea Fritters
The nutty flavours of chickpeas and quinoa are married with delicious sweet potato and warm Indian spices to create these crispy fritters. Topped with a dollop of delicious Garlic Yogurt Sauce, they will absolutely be a crowd pleaser for entertaining at any time of the year!
- Combine all of the ingredients for the Garlic Yogurt Sauce together in a small bowl and set aside in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve the fritters.
- In a food processor, combine all of the fritter ingredients except the quinoa, and pulse just until combined but with the chickpeas still retaining some texture (don’t over-mix as it will turn too mushy). Stir in the quinoa by hand.
- Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a large, heavy frying pan on the stove on medium-high heat. Using a small portion scoop or tablespoon, portion out a heaping tablespoon of the batter into the oil; don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until each side is crispy brown.
- Place on a cooling rack with paper towel underneath and repeat until done (you may need to add more oil during the cooking process). Serve immediately
