Falafel Recipe

Okay, after my post yesterday about the falafels I had a number of people ask for the recipe so thought I would post it here for you to try.
This is our own recipe that we seem to modify every time we make it, so feel free to change it around for your own taste preference.

We use dried chickpeas so we take 2 cups and soak them at least overnight, they occasionally get to soak longer depending how busy we are… or just use 2 cans. Grind them up. We use our blender, but chose your own method.

2 red onions – finely chopped
2 cloves garlic – finely chopped
3 tbsp parsley
1 tsp corriander
2 tsp cumin (you might want to add more to desired taste)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 heaping tbsp white flour. Be sure to use flour and not crushed flowers 🙂

Don’t add water! We have added water in the past when we were grinding up the chickpeas in the blender, but they don’t stick together well at all!

Blend everything together in a large bowl.

If you have a deep fryer you can fry them in there. We have had success using our large wok with it about 1/2 full of canola oil. We roll them into small balls then flatten them to get small patties (about 2″ across and 1/2″ thick). Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn and be very careful with all that hot oil! We turn them when they start getting brown. Put them onto a paper towel to help absorb some of the extra oil.

Then, enjoy! Fresh is best, but they freeze well too.
