Method:
Mash chickpeas – don’t over mash texture is key here, you want to have different textures.
Using a mortar and pestle mix all dry ingredients together. Ensure you break up the seeds.

To assemble the puffs cut the sheets into four squares, so you end up with 12 squares.
Spoon in your mixtures. You should have enough to make 6 of each. Fold the square to make a triangle and press down on the edges to close. Make sure there is not holes for the filling to escape through.
Once you have your 12 triangles lightly oil and place on your baking tray. Bake for 15 -20 mins at 180C. Check at 15 mins, if they are puffed and lightly browned they are ready.
