Make Hot Pepper Mayonnaise.
Process chickpeas, onion, flour eggs, garlic, red pepper sauce, salt, and pepper in food processor or blender just until slightly chunky (5-6 pulses). Transfer to mixing bowl and stir in scallions and parsley. If serving fritters hot, heat oven to 250F.
Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until small drop of batter makes lively sizzle. Drop batter by ½ tablespoonfuls into oil and flatten slightly with spatula. Fry until bottom is brown (1-2 min.), then turn and brown second side. Transfer fritters to paper towels to drain. Keep warm in oven or let cool to room temperature. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with pepper mayonnaise.

Process egg, mustard, and salt in food processor of blender until mixed. With machine running, add oil in thin, steady stream and process until emulsified. Transfer mayonnaise to small bowl and stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort. I'll be going back to the normal cob loaf dips, much prefer those. Won't make this again." - sherri3802

"Delicious recipe! In a rush I was able to simmer for 45 mins and use some red wine that's been sitting in the cabinet. To make this healthier I used whole wheat thin spaghetti and no salt added cans except for the tomato paste." - zach g.
