  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 1 big onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup parsley and coriander leaves
  • 2 medium potatoes boiled and peeled
  • 2 tbsp plain flour ( I used chapatti flour )
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3-4 green chillies
  • 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes or chilli powder
  • 1 tsp dried cumin and coriander powder
  • oil for frying
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. Falafel are ready to serve on it's own or you can be used in sandwich.

To make pitta sandwich you'll need
  • Pitta Bread ( I used wholemeal pitta bread)
  • sliced red onions ,diced tomatoes, jalapenos,Olives,
  • fresh ice burg lettuce
  • sweet chilli sauce
  • caramelized onion hummus
  • falafel
 Heat pita bread on grill or flat pan, cut the pitta to make a pocket, stuff it with falafel, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos,olives hummus, sauce
