Felafel by M. Kuehn

posted in: RECIPES 0

Falafel wraps are extremely popular in the cafe. They’re popular everywhere actually and I was fortunate enough to watch my good friend Oreet’s mum, who is a talented home cook from Isreal, make these delicious nuggets.

TIP Please don’t be tempted to use tinned chick peas. The result is too mushy.
450gr of chick peas
1 banana shallot
handful of coriander leaves
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 tbs flour
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
vegetable  oil for frying

Place the chickpeas in a glass bowl and pour over enough water to have four inches above the chickpeas. Leave overnight. Rinse and drain the peas well. Now put everything into a processor and wizz for a minute.

Scrape the sides down and blitz for about thirty seconds more until you have a paste like consistency.     Heat a frying pan and add 8 tbs of oil. Dampen your hands and shape the felafel into small cylinder shapes and fry for two minutes on each side.

Serve in a wrap with crunchy red cabbage, iceberg lettuce, garlic mayo, chili sauce and diced tomatoes and shallots.
