Soak the chickpeas over night in purified water, changing the water a few times. In a food processor add the chickpeas (not cooked), onions, garlic, parsley, spices and baking soda. Blend until the mixture is grainy. Form pingpong sized balls, trying not to compact them too much. Fry in vegetable oil until golden.
