Falafel Recipe / Chickpea Falafel

Falafel Recipe by GoSpicy.net Falafel Recipe by GoSpicy.net

Falafel is a middle eastern recipe. It is more or like south indian masala vadai/paruppu vadai. The main difference here is grinding all ingredients together including onions, cilantro, green chilli etc with chickpeas. I usually use parsley for this recipe. But today I am going to use cilantro(coriander leaves) instead of parsley because parsley may not be available at many places.

NOTES

Add rice flour if the falafel ball doesn't hold together.

You can add fennel seeds, ginger if you like.

Falafel is usually served with tahini sauce. It can also taste delicious with coconut chutney.

If you have parsley, use parsley instead of coriander leaves. It will give a different flavour.

Serve falafel as a side dish, appetizer or snack. I usually like it as a evening snack.
