Chickpea Balls

The chickpea balls here are inspired by my memory of a falafel. I used to love it. It was one of the staples in my diet during my university years. Just this time, I decided to let my creativity unleash itself and added something that might sound strange, but it made them so good… I added dried & sweet melon pieces! The chickpea balls turned out delicious! Are you eager to try?
