I was inspired to try these fritters after coming across something similar on the internet.
I had never used chickpeas in a fritter before, so I was not sure how these would turn out. I decided to add an Arabian twist to these fritters by adding some of my favourite aromatic spices.
These fritters are quick and easy to make and can be whipped up right before lunch or dinner if you have all the ingredients.
