Best Falafel Recipe
Servings: 10 - 15 pieces
Prep Time: 20 minutes
2 cups soaked chickpeas
2 garlic cloves
1 red chili
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup coriander leaves
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. garam masala
1/2 tbsp. salt
vegetable oil (enough for frying)
1. First, pull off the stems of the parsley and coriander leaves. Now, put the soaked chickpeas*, garlic cloves, coriander leaves, parsley, and red chili in a hand-blender and hand-grind it until the mixture is even and finely ground.
Tip: To check whether your mixture is ready, take a handful of it, and make it into a ball. If it doesn't break apart, it is ready!
2. Take out your ready mixture onto a bowl and blend the spices (ground cumin, salt, garam masala and lemon juice) into it and blend it together.
Tip: If your mixture isn't binding try adding 1 tbsp. plain flour in it.
3. Now take out a frying pan and place it on your stove. Pour your vegetable oil into the frying pan and turn your stove on medium heat.
Tip: To check whether your oil is hot enough take 1/4 tsp of your mixture and try dipping it in the oil. If a few bubbles rise that means your oil is hot enough for frying. If not, wait for a few more minutes.
4. Now using your hands, make small balls out of your mixture (oval-shaped) and start frying them until they turn golden brown. Your falafels are now ready!
* Soak the chickpeas overnight and use a hand-grinder to remove the extra water left behind. If you have any questions you can drop in in the comments!
