Garbanzo Fritters and Cilantro Dip

Growing up in our Cuban household there was always a side dish of something fried, usually plantains, yuca or boniato but many times fritters.Ivonne


For the Fritters:

15 oz canned garbanzo beans, drained

1 small onion

2 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

1 egg

1 tbsp all purpose flour


In a food processor or blender puree the garbanzo beans with the onion and garlic and egg.

Mix in the cumin and salt and cilantro.

Transfer to a bowl and stir in the flour.

Heat a skillet with about 1/2 inch of vegetable oil.

Take a tablespoon of your mixture and form it into a small ball in the palm of your hand.

Drop it into the oil and brown on all sides.

Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate.

Do this in batches.

It should yield 12-14 fritters.
