Chickpea Fritters with Yogurt Sauce

These fritters some together quickly with things from your cupboard—and for those mornings when you may have overindulged a little bit the evening prior, a deep-fried chickpea fritter can be just what's called for. The yogurt sauce is a simplified tzatziki, and is just the right complement for these simple fritters.

How much to mash the chickpeas is up to your preference; I tried to leave about a third of the chickpeas whole and really enjoyed the results. If you don't have tahini on hand, omit it. And if there are no jarred peppers in your cupboard, give fresh a try or throw in something totally different.
