Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. I use minimal oil and no artificial colors.

These Chickpeas Vegetable Fritters are Mouth-watering

Chickpeas are a known source of protein that many vegans enjoy. They also contain various vitamins and minerals that boost our immune system. Chickpea dishes are delicious and filling.

In this recipe, I used onions, ginger, garlic, carrots, green peas, and chopped coriander leaves along with the coarsely ground chickpeas. These fritters are nicely flavored with fresh spices. I made these vegetable chickpea cakes by shallow-frying them in a pan with a small amount of oil. They were crunchy and appetizing. I served them hot with tomato sauce for the breakfast. You can serve them even with a yogurt dip.

Let me share the detailed recipe now.
