Falafel is my favorite appetizer and its even better with hummos and pita bread. I never made Falafel when I was living in Jordan because its everywhere. But since I moved to texas, I had to learn how to make Falafel from scratch :-(.  My husband really enjoyed them especially during Ramadan. Give it a try 🙂

Falafel :

1 1/2 cup of chickpeas soaked in water overnight

Pinch of baking soda

1 chopped onion

1 garlic cloves

1 teaspoon of coriander spice

1 cup of fresh coriander

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of cumin

Vegetable oil to fry the falafel.

Add the chickpeas to water and soak overnight, drain the water from time to time. add a little bit of baking soda .The next day drain the chickpeas from the water

Add the chickpeas to a food processor , add the chopped onion , garlic cloves, coriander spice , fresh coriander and baking soda, salt ,cumin .Blend well

Shape the mixture into form of small balls and set aside. Heat the vegetable oil , once the oil is hot add the falafel and fry until golden in color. Serve Hot
