Falafel or Chickpea Patties || Falafeln oder Kichererbsenbällchen

The falafel is a traditional dish of the Arab world. Essentially, it’s a chickpea or broad bean fritter. I’ve never tasted broad been falafel, maybe someday… but the most common version of this recipe is made of chickpeas.

We often eat various types of vegetable patties at home, but the falafel is a one of our favorites. It’s typically served with tahini or garlic sauce, or with salad into pita bread.

The important thing about the falafel is it’s made of raw chickpeas that are soaked in advance. Canned chickpeas won’t do the trick for this particular recipe because they’re too soft and crumbly.

Instructions
  1. Soak chickpeas in cold water in advance for 8-12 hours.
  2. Peel the onion and garlic, wash the parsley and put it all together in a food processor or blender and pulse until roughly chopped.
  3. Drain the chickpeas from the water and add to the blender. Add the flour and blend until a grainy texture is obtained. The mixture should look a bit like couscous - it must be grainy, not smooth.
  4. Put the mixture in a freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Took it out and shape into small patties.
  5. Heat some frying oil in a pan and fry the falafels on each side until golden.
