Place all of the ingredients for the fritters, except for the olive oil which you will use for frying the fritters, into the bowl of a food processor.
Process all of the ingredients together until you create a smooth mixture.
Heat approximately 1/2 inch of olive oil in a non-stick pan (you will not use all of the olive oil for frying all at once).
Scoop 1 tablespoon of the chickpea mixture and use your hands to make a ball which you will then flatten into a disc using the palms of your hands. Note, the dough is quite sticky.
As you shape each fritter, transfer it carefully into the hot oil, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.
Cook for approximately 2 - 3 minutes and then carefully flip the chickpea fritters over to cook for another 2 - 3 minutes on the opposite side.
As your chickpea fritters develop a nice brown colour on both sides, transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
