One of those words and dishes I just can’t get enough of! Falafel. Tasty balls of chickpea goodness. Of Middle Eastern origin. Just plain, yum!
Here is what you will need:
1 cup cooked Chickpeas (try to avoid canned chickpeas, that have brine added which means added salt. Rather cook up dried chickpeas from scratch.)
1 onion chopped.
2 garlic cloves (none of that bottled nonsense)
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon of red chilly powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
2 tbsp wholewheat flour
3 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Pinch of Himalayan sea salt.
Coconut oil for frying
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Form balls. Fry in coconut oil until golden brown. Turn them over often to ensure they don’t burn (Like my batch did hahaha)
