Tuna and Chickpea Fritters - Donna Hay


I have to admit when I saw the combination used to make these fritters, I was slightly taken aback.  I love almost any kind of fritters but tuna and chickpeas did not sound like anything delightful.

I am a trooper and being a member in good standing of the WwDH group (I have no idea how to become a member in less than good standing.), I faced the challenge head-on and ended up with a yummy lunch.

The recipe called for canned tuna in oil with chili.  I have never noted any tuna with chili and I only use tuna in water.  I imagine, this would have been even better with the extra fat.  I still passed it up. Spices are cumin, black pepper, and garlic.

By some "magical trick", these were flavorful and light.  I was going to bake them instead of the suggested frying.  My batter was wet and I did not think, I could shape them to hold up in the oven.  At least, on the stove, I could mold them, if necessary.


These resulted in a happy cook who deserves her badge in Loyalty to Donna Hay.  Check out our page and see what the other gals have done with this recipe.

Special thanks to Sara for picking this recipe and I respect her more for the choice.

  1. I skipped out on days today but I am going to have to make them at some point because they look too good to pass up

  3. Well it all looks nice the way you presented it. I just know that no one here was going to be onboard with eating tuna anything and we don't fry on a general basis so I figured I wouldn't participate this week. It's fun to see what you all came up with, however. :-)

  5. Since I am not a chickpea fan, except in hummus, I skipped this one. You are so dedicated. Never would you be NOT in good standing!!! I will try this for catch-up since everyone said they were good.

  7. These look lovely, something I'd take to a BBQ, as we have a few veggies friends who would love these, I'd put the chili back in as I love a bit of spice, thanks for sharing #TuesdayTable
