Falafel is really a falafel ball. It is typically fried, but may also be baked. It always consists of one or more types of beans; usually fava beans or chickpeas. In some regional varieties parsley is added too.

All other ingredients may vary, depending on flavor preferences or preparation technique.

Ingredients[edit]

Procedure[edit]

  1. The night before, place the chickpeas in a bowl and cover with water (they will expand, so cover with at least a couple of inches). Drain, rinse, and dry before using. Note: this will be about 4 cups' worth, all of which gets used.
  2. In a food processor or blender puree chickpeas. To the chickpeas add the other ingredients (garlic, peanut butter, green onion, onion, egg, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper and soy sauce); process until well mixed.
  3. Shape into balls, using about 1 tablespoon for each.
  4. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Brown balls on all sides.
