4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp ground cumin 5 g
1 tsp turmeric 3 g
1 tsp salt [optional] 4 g
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1/4 cup Italian parsley, fresh, finely chopped 22 g
1/4 cup water 65 mL
1 tbsp lemon, juiced 1/2 lemon
1 pinch cayenne pepper 0.1 g
1/3 cup whole wheat flour 45 g

Method

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients with your hands, except the flour and oil. Mash the chickpeas to form a paste, some chickpeas can be left whole. Add the flour and mix well.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Form the patties, using 2 tbsp of mixture per patty (about 4-6 patties per serving). Transfer the patties to the pan and press gently on each one. Cook for 5 min on each side, until golden. Depending on pan size, falafels may be cooked in batches.
  3. Serve hot or warm.
