  • 1 onion, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 200g freshly mashed potato

  • 1 tsp roasted coriander seeds, crushed
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves
  • 2 tsp roasted cumin seeds crushed
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

method

  1. Place the chickpeas and onion in a food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes or until roughly mashed.
