Chickpea Balls [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
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?

25 balls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chickpeas

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
