Falafel is one of my favourite Middle Eastern dishes. I like to use it on a roll , with pitta bread or with salad .
What we need
½ cup dried chickpea (Kabuli chana)
2 clove garlic
2 Tbsp. coriander leave
2 slice white bread
4-6 Green chilli
½ onion chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
50gm.Mix salad leave thinly sliced
1 small Onion diced
2 Tomato diced
1 small cucumber diced
4 tbsp. curd
1 tbsp. grated cucumber
Salt and pepper
How to make
Clean and soak chickpeas for 5-6 hour or overnight, then wash and drain. In a mixer grind chickpeas along with garlic, green chilli, coriander leave and salt to make a coarse paste. Add bread, onion and flour; then, run the mixer again until it is mixed.
Transfer the mixture to the bowl, cover and keep in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Take a small portion of the mixture and make a small ball and press slightly to flatten.
Heat oil in a pan, fry falafel on medium heat until golden brown. Serve hot with dip and salad.
To make dip take a bowl, add curd, cucumber and salt and pepper and mix well.
Combine all salad ingredients together arrange salad mixture on a serving platter then place falafel drizzle with curd dip.
If you can’t make ball add 1 tbsp. Flour or breadcrumb and mix. While frying, place one by one. First, fry one falafel and check whether it sustains its shape.
