Once the chickpeas have finished soaking, mash them in a bowl together with the spices until they are well-mixed, but not a purée.
If necessary, add a bit of water and adjust the salt, pepper and lemon according to taste.
Shape into balls, about the size and shape of a slightly flattened walnut, then let them rest in the refrigerator for a half hour.
Fry them in boiling oil for about five minutes, turning them, until they form a golden crust.
Serve with tahini (sesame sauce), hummus, or yogurt.
