The following recipe is for 4 persons
1 big onion
Cumin (1/2 teaspoon)
2 table spoons flour
Olive oil to fry the falafels
Well I think that this dish is not only among the most famous in Arab people, but to many people around the world as well.Grind all the ingredients(chick peas, onion and parsley) in a wide utensil. Add salt pepper and cumin. If your mixture is fluid add some flour to make it more robust.
Let all of these ingredients in a refrigerator for about an hour.
After you have let them in the refrigerator fry them in medium temperature.
Give them a figure, of a small but flat meat ball, by pressing them in the top during the formation phase.
Beware donít overheat olive oil, because high temperature destroys its precious substances.
You can serve(see the photo) them with a spicy sauce, Arab bread and well chopped vegetables.
Itís a recipe that my Veggie friends will adore.
