Here I have prepared for you an incredible recipe for the most flavorful, fresh, and crispy falafel balls.
falafel is a Mediterranean street food that has many variations. Currently I am living In israel and you have on almost every street corner a small shop serving falafel balls. Traditionally it is served inside pita bread, with tahini, pickles, and fresh Israeli salad composed of diced tomatoes and cucumbers.
People usually think that falafel making is a complicated process but it really is very simple, and it’s a great meal for anytime of the day.
I’ve composed a recipe that mixes some new fresh ingredients with some traditional ingredients that I saw used by my boyfriends Iraqi grandmother back in the day.
The batter is based on chickpeas that have been soaked over night - drained - and then blended with fresh herbs and spices.
I recommend to make this at home for a fun lunch, if you haven’t used all the batter you can freeze it as is and re use it for another time.
This is also a gluten free meal.
