chickpea-kofta recipe

I just got around to trying this recipe and it is WONDERFUL !!  It is
a VERY tolerant recipe too.  I made 1-person portions, which means my
relative ingredient portions were probably way off.  Day 2 I ran out
of yogurt and used milk.  Also didn't feel like using the food
processor so I crushed the chickpeas with a fork and stirred the rest
together with a spoon.  Day 3 I ran out of potatoes and used dried.
The one instruction I recommend following for sure is to flatten and
flip them half way through the baking.

These are **really ** great, try them!

Process chickpeas in food processor until texture resembles coarse
bread crumbs. Transfer 2/3 of mixture to a mixing bowl along with

Drop spoonfuls of mixture on sheet like cookies.  Makes 15-20.

flattening with the spatula before flipping.  Let them cool a bit
