- 1 onion
- 4 garlic cloves
- Parsley leaves
- ½ tablespoons chickpeas flour
- 2 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
- ¼ tablespoons cayenne pepper
- Add water to the dry chickpeas and soak for 24 hours
- Roughly chop onion
- Chop garlic
- Chop parsley leaves
- Blend the soaked chickpeas with onion, garlic, parsley, chickpeas flour
- Season with salt, pepper, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper
- Mix in blender until the texture is a little bit chunky
- Form small balls out of the mixture
- Heat oil in a boiler
- Fry the balls of Falafel until golden brown and serve
This is the basic serving of Falafel. If you are feeling creative, you can also try adding pita wrap or other herbs to spice up the flavour.
