Using a fork, mash 1/2 cup of chickpeas in a small bowl. And set aside.


For the burgers, add to the bowl of food processor the onion, scallion, garlic, spices, salt and pepper and parsley, and pulse until fine chopped/somewhat smooth. Add half the remaining chickpeas and pulse until chopped. Add remaining chickpeas and pulse until coarsely chopped.


Transfer the mixture to a large bowl; add the reserved chickpeas and flour and fold together. Form into 4 patties and chill for at least 30 mins up to overnight.


Heat oil in skillet and 2 patties, cooking until dark brown and crisp before flipping. Repeat with remaining patties.
