Let the chickpeas soak in water all night.

The next day, rinse and cut/grind them. 

Traditionally, a manual grinder was used, but today there are many appliances available.

Grate the onion and the tomatoes. 

Mix all ingredients and let the mixture rise for some time.

When it is ready, take small quantities of the mixture using a tablespoon and deep fry. 

As an alternative, use self-rising flour without using dry yeast and do not wait until the mixture rises, but deep fry immediately.
