Nohut Koftesi | Chickpea Patties | Turkish Style Chickpea Patties | Turkish Recipes

Similar to falafel, this vegetarian entree is a unique way to use chickpeas.  It is served with a delicious yogurt sauce.


Recipe source – “The Turkish CookBook”

  • Canned chickpeas – 1 ½ cups (15.5 ounces), rinsed and drained
  • Egg – 1 large
  • Flour – 5 tbsp
  • Garlic – 2 to 3 cloves, minced
  • Italian flat leaf parsley – 2 tbsp finely chopped
  • Aleppo pepper – ½ tsp
  • Scallions – 3 root end & damaged green leaves removed, thinly sliced crosswise
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Canola oil - ¼ cup for frying


Place the chickpeas, egg, flour, salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, Aleppo pepper and scallions in the food processor and pulse until well blended.

Transfer the mixture on a plate. Divide the mixture into equal size balls. Wet your hands and flatten each ball into 2 inch round patties.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the patties for 2 to 3 minutes, turn and cook until golden brown.

Serve with yogurt sauce.
