Chickpea Fritters (Falafel)
Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F.
Heat 1 Tablespoon of the sunflower oil in a frying pan over a moderate heat and saute the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Continue cooking for a further 2-3 minutes until they start to color, add the spices and stir well, then transfer to a mixing bowl.
Take tablespoons of the mixture and mold into small balls using the palms of your hand. Roll in the flour, shaking off any excess.
