  3. Divide the chickpeas mixture into balls (if you have a problem handling the dough with ease, place it in the fridge for half an hour). With your hands form every ball into a hamburger patty. Put aside and continue until you have finished all the dough.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium - high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and swirl to coat the whole pan. Carefully add 2 falafel burgers and cook until the bottom surfaces are browned and crisp, about 6 - 8 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook for another 5 minutes.
