I give up on these until I get a meat grinder! I suggest to NOT attempt to make these with dried garbanzo beans in a food processor as it just was not able to grind them small enough so they fell apart while deep frying. The other time I tried them they completely became mush after frying for a couple minutes but since it seems lemon juice was removed from the recipe. The only reason I could think of could have been the lemon or the onion's juice. Using drained canned chickpeas like another reviewer. Both times the flavour was good but I will not try these again until the proper appliance is purchased. Made for Ramadan Tag.
So Delicious! Hubby and Son gobbled these up with Tahina. I used canned chickpeas. Thanks for a fast falafel. Made for Ramadan Tag 09.
