Vegetarian dishes don’t have to be boring at all. Fried crispy chickpea balls with sesame and herbs best dipped in the sauce of your choice or stuff it altogether in a warm pita bread.

Author's Notes

Whatever you do: it is crucial that you soak the dried chickpeas overnight. Because only after soaking them you will get that perfectly crumbly falafel texture!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Soak the Dried Chickpeas (1 1/2 cups) in a generous amount of water overnight.
Step 2
Rinse the chickpeas and drain well. Add them to a clean blender.
Step 3
Pulse for a minute until you end up with a very fine crumble.
Step 4
Transfer this to a large mixing bowl. Add the Shallot (1) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Fresh Parsley (1 handful) , Fresh Cilantro (1 handful) , and Fresh Mint (1 handful) to blender.
Step 5
Pulse into a fine mixture and add this to the chickpea crumble in the bowl.
Step 6
Stir well. Add the Baking Powder (1/2 tsp) . Season with the Ground Cumin (1 tsp) , Garam Masala (1 tsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1/4 tsp) , Ground Turmeric (1/2 tsp) and a dash of Ground Black Pepper (to taste) and Salt (to taste) . Drizzle with Olive Oil (to taste) .
Step 7
Stir the wet chickpea crumble well and form it into 14 to 15 even balls.
Step 8
Put the falafels on a clean plate and chill them in the fridge for 30 minutes. Pour an inch of Frying Oil (to taste) in a non-stick pan and place it over medium-high heat.
Step 9
Fry them for 3 to 4 minutes until they are golden brown on all sides.
Step 10
Transfer the fried falafels onto some kitchen paper to drain.
Step 11
Serve the falafels with a dipping sauce of your choice (hummus, pesto, my sesame yogurt falafel sauce, even tartar sauce), some fresh lettuce, cucumber, tomato or tabbouleh or stuff it altogether in a warm pita bread.
