Chickpea Balls - Revithokeftedes

“This traditional Greek dish is similar to falafel, but with less spice and flavored with cheese and is usually served as an appetizer. They are very easy to make with dry chickpeas, but canned may be substituted. Use a cheese grater to mash the tomato. Servings are approximate. Time needed for soaking the chickpeas not included. Found online and posted for ZWT 6, Greece.”
