DIRECTIONS
1. Soak the chickpeas at room temperature in cold water with a tablespoon of bicarb for a minimum of 4 hours. Overnight is best.
 
2. Once soaked, wash and place the chickpeas on the stove with hot water with a tablespoon of bicarb and bring to the boil to cook for 20mins till soft. As cooking, you may need to strain any foam and skins that float. Once soft; strain and rinse in cold water.
 
3. In another pot of water, peel, dice and boil the potatoes till tender, about 15mins.  Strain and rinse in cold water.
 
4. While the chickpeas are cooking make the yogurt sauce. Squeeze all the juice from the grated cucumber and discard. In a bowl combine the cucumber with the yogurt, garlic, spices, lemon zest and juice. Fold gently and place in the fridge.
 
5. Prepare the radish and onion by finely slicing or using a mandolin to shave into a bowl. Break up the onion using your hands and add a pinch of sumac.
 
6. Dice the cherry tomatoes and place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, diced parsley and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix and set to the side.
 
7. Finely dice the coriander, spring onion and parsley and add to a large bowl. Add ½ the chickpeas, all the potatoes, herbs and spices, lemon juice, yogurt and olive oil. Using a potato masher; roughly smash all the ingredients till they start to bind. Switch to a wooden spoon and add in the corn flour, bread crumbs and remaining chickpeas till the mix forms. Chill for 10 mins in the fridge.
 
8. Place a large non-stick fry pan over a medium to high heat and drizzle with olive oil. Using an ice cream scoop, create a small ball and flatten into patties on your palm. Add to the pan and cook for 3 mins on each side till brown. Repeat for as many patties as required; the mix should make about 24 small patties.
