DIRECTIONS

  • Place dried chickpeas in a bowl and cover with cold water.
  • Soak for at least 15 hours.
  • Then drain the chickpeas and place them in a food processor with the scallions, garlic, parsley, mint, chili, salt, cumin, and coriander.
  • Mix baking with the warm water and add mixture to food processor. Process until smooth. Transfer mixture into a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile heat about 2 inches of oil in a heavy pan to 375 degrees F.
  • When falafel mixture is chilled, roll into golf-sized balls.
  • Carefully place a few at a time into the hot oil, making sure they don't stick to the bottom. Cook, turning, for about 6 minutes, or until the balls are a dark, even brown on all sides. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve either in sandwiches or as a falafel first course.
  • Serve with a yogurt sauce.
