Important Notes: Soak your chickpeas overnight in a 6” deep pan. Mix this recipe in two separate batches so that everything you see below you will do twice.
In a food processor start by adding half of the onion, 1 bunch parsley and half bunch cilantro (and jalapeno opt.); mix (this creates moisture before adding the chickpeas to help them grind).
Add half of the chickpeas; mix (pieces should be even, but don’t over-mix. You should mix for about 1 minute, turning the food processor off once to wipe down the sides of the mixer with a spatula/spoon)
Dump mix out into a big kitchen bowl.
Repeat above steps with second half of ingredients.
Dump second half into bowl.
Add spices, salt and baking soda to bowl/chickpea mixture.
Mix together with your hands
Deep fry in oil at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until cooked through and browned to your liking.
