FALAFEL

These falafels are soo popular and i had to record a video tutorial due to everyones demand. Everyone has their own way of making falafel and each one seems so different from the other. Falafels are usually served with hummus(garbanzo dip ) or a yogurt tahini sauce. I serve them with my own yogurt sauce which i have also recorded a video of and will upload it shortly. This is the recipe of both the falafel and the sauce.
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup of garbanzos or chick peas soaked in 3 cups of water overnight
1-2 flakes of garlic or more if you like garlic a lot
1 teaspoon each of Nitu Didi cumin seeds, coriander seeds and sesame seeds
salt to taste
1 -2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
oil for deep frying
METHOD:
soak the garbanzo beans overnight and then drain off the water and blend in food processor without adding any water till it forms into a paste. Add the spices , herbs and garlic and blend altogether. Add salt and shape into rounds with a little pressure so that the balls are firm. Flatten a bit with your palm (see attached video) and deep fry in hot oil till golden brown.
Serve with yogurt sauce of your choice
TO MAKE MY YOGURT SAUCE
2 cups of plain yogurt (250 grams)
2 tablespoons of onion soup
a little chopped fresh coriander
a little red chilli powder if you like it spicy
a dash (1/4 teaspoon) of garlic powder
METHOD:
mix the yogurt with the above ingredients and leave it for 2-3 hours for all the flavors to infuse. This is excellent with all kinds of snacks and also as a dip.
