First tip the soaked chick peas, and their water, into a saucepan.
Bring them up to the boil, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until they’re absolutely tender. Then drain well and mash them to a pulp.
Now put the 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan and gently fry the onion and green pepper until softened; then beat them into the mashed chick peas together with all the remaining ingredients (except, of course, the breadcrumbs and frying oil).
Do a bit of tasting at this stage and season with salt and pepper.
As soon as it’s cool enough to handle, form the mixture into 6 patties and coat each one with breadcrumbs.
Put about 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the patties to a golden brown colour.
Serve them hot garnished with slices of raw Spanish onion and some natural yoghurt as a sauce.
