How to Make Falafel

Recipe by palousebrand




  • Once well incorporated transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in flour 1 Tbsp. at a time until the mixture is thick enough to handle – about 3-4 Tbsp.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Shape falafels.
  • Prepare a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add enough oil to more than cover the bottom of the pan. You want enough oil for cooking, turning and cooking some more until a golden brown crust forms on the outside of your Falafel. Remember to turn during cooking so they are evenly done.
  • Comfortably fit as many Falafels in the pan at a time to cook.
  • Check at the 1-2 minute mark to ensure they’re not browning too quickly. If they are, slightly reduce heat. Flip once deep golden brown – about 3-4 minutes.
  • Cook until the underside is golden brown as well.
  • Serve immediately with hummus and paprika, or inside a pita or sandwich with garlic sauce, hummus, or fresh vegetables. Imagine it and you will love it!
  • Falafels will store in the fridge, layered with parchment or wax paper in an airtight container for several days. Freeze if you want them to keep longer.
