Boil the fava with one onion and a bay leaf and enough water to cover.
Once the water has evaporated, the fava peas should be soft enough to mash with a fork. Remove the bay leaf and mash or transfer to a food processor.
Add in the dried herbs and semolina flour to absorb any excess moisture.
Keep in the fridge for 30 minutes and start shaping the fritters in walnut sized bites.
Roll in the semolina flour or fine breadcrumbs to give them a light coat and a golden colour when baked.
To make the favoketethes, bake in a fan assisted oven at 180 C for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
