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 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.
