DIRECTIONS

  • Place all ingredients except flour in a food processor.
  • Blend until the consistency is uniform.
  • Thoroughly mix flour into the felafel batter with a spoon.
  • Heat a heavy skillet and add oil to coat completely. Wait until oil is heated and water sizzles upon contact when sprinkled into pan.
  • Drop tablespoons of the batter into the oil, flattening slightly with a spatula like a small thick pancake. When bottoms are crispy and browned, flip them over.
  • Place cooked felafel on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any residual oil.
  • Keep warm in a 300 degree oven if not serving immediately.
  • ***Note: Felafel may be deep fried, but use a standard vegetable oil as opposed to olive oil which does not have a high heat tolerance.
