Cover; process, using quick on-and-off motions, adding flour 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture is well blended.
  • 4 With wet hands, form about 3 tablespoons chickpea mixture into 3-inch patty. Repeat to make 7 more patties. In 12-inch skillet, heat remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook patties in oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, or until golden brown.
