Ruben's picture
These flavorful rounds are made from well-seasoned fava beans and then fried golden brown. They're perfect served by themselves or in pita bread sandwiches.
Ingredients
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Dried white fava beans 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Garbanzo Beans)
  Egg 1
  Red onion 1 Small, finely chopped
  Chopped parsley 3 Tablespoon
  Gold medal all purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Ground coriander 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Baking powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground red pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon (Cayenne)
  Vegetable oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

1. Heat 2 cups water and the beans to boiling in 2-quart saucepan. Boil 2 minutes; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 1 hour.
2. Add enough water to cover beans if necessary. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 1 to 1/2 hours or until tender. Drain, reserving liquid.
3. Mash beans with fork; add 2 to 3 tablespoons reserved liquid if necessary. (Do not puree beans in blender or food processor.) Stir in remaining ingredients except oil. (Mixture should be thick.) Cover and let stand 1 hour.
4. Pinch off 1-inch pieces; shape into rounds and flatten. Let stand 30 minutes.
