Chickpea Balls (Revithokeftedes)

Print Friendly and PDF
A nice, healthy dish that is actually a lot more filling than it may appear to the eyes. This can be eaten as a main dish at lunch along with salad or can be part of a buffet meal. In the photo the balls are long, but you can also make them round.
1 kg boiled chickpeas
600g bulgur
1 kg mashed onions
7 pieces sun-dried tomato
1 tablespoon chopped spring onion
1 clove of garlic
Some parsley

For the sauce
3-4 tomatoes
1 teaspoon sugar
1 clove of garlic
Olive oil


Soak the chickpeas from the previous evening and boil them with the marjoram.
Once they're boiledand soft, remove the skin and place them in a bowl and mash them.

Add the bulgur, having washed it well first.
Then add both kinds of onions, 1 clove of garlic, chopped finely, salt and pepper.
Finally, add the sun-dried tomato and mix all the ingredients well.
Knead the mixture with your hands until you have created a smooth mixture, and place it in the fridge for a few minutes to harden a little bit.

Make the mixture into balls (long or round) and sprinkle them with flour.
Fry them in plenty of oil and then put them on a plate where you have laid a paper towel, to absorb the oil.

Heat some oil in another frying pan and brown the clove of garlic. Once it gives off its aroma, remove it from the frying pan.

Add the grated tomatoes and lower the heat.
When it comes to a boil, add salt, pepper and some sugar if the tomato is very fresh.
Let it simmer for 15 minutes.

To serve, pour the sauce on the dish and place the chickpea balls on top of it.
Eat and Enjoy!
