Falafel is an internationally-recognized Israeli food made from chickpeas (garbanzo beans). It’s a healthy vegetarian meal you can enjoy with your family, and this falafel maker makes the process a breeze! Use this recipe to make the falafel mixture, scoop to form a ball, and press the mix out into a pot of heated oil. Falafel is usually served inside a pita bread, sandwich-style, but can also be served as an appetizer. You can serve your falafel with humus or yogurt, or any other sauce you prefer.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz (225g) chick peas,
  • 1 onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 slice of white bread, soaked in a little water
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. coriander, ground
  • 1 tsp. cumin, ground
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • oil for frying
Directions:
  • Soak the chick peas overnight.
  • Cover with plenty of fresh water and cook for 1 - 1 1/2 hours until tender.
  • Pound or blend the chick peas to a purée.
  • Squeeze out the bread and add to the chick peas together with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Knead well for a few minutes.
  • Let the mixture rest for 1-2 hours, then roll between the palms into firm 1" balls. (Wetted hands make this easier).
  • Heat oil (at least 1 inch deep) in a pan to about 360° F (180°C), and fry the balls, a few at a time, until nicely brown all over — about 2-3 minutes.
  • Drain and serve hot with lemon wedges.
