Chickpeas are a common ingredient in many dishes in Pakistan where I grew up. In my home I try to incorporate the tastes of my home country when cooking for my American-born daughters. I have combined the light spice of Pakistani foods with the love of deep-fried finger foods that many Americans, including my daughters, enjoy. To eat, dip the warm fritters in the chilled yogurt. Enjoy as a snack, appetizer, or as part of a meal. —Shahrin Hasan, York, Pennsylvania
