Drain, rinsed and dry soaked chickpeas.  Place chickpeas in food processor with all the ingredients except oil. grind them to a coarse paste. Mix well and form the mixture into balls, slightly flatten, place on a tray, cover and refrigerate for about half an hour. Deep fry them on a medium to low heat until golden brown. It will take about 7-8 minutes. Fry falafel in batches. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain them on a kitchen towel to remove access oil.
