Falafel (Repost)

Preparation time: 25 min | Cooking time: 15 min

This is a repost to participate in the WYF-Tea time snack event.

This is a famous Lebanese delicacy. It can be savoured as a snack or rolled up into a sandwich with a salad.

Dry chick peas-1cup
Parsley-1 bunch
Coriander leaves-1/2 bunch
Whole cumin seeds-1tbsp
Cumin powder-1tbsp
Coriander powder-1tbsp
Whole coriander-1tbsp
Black pepper-1tsp
Mixed spices(optional)-1/4tsp
Oil for frying
Salt to taste

Soak the chick peas overnight, drain and wash well. Add chopped parsley, coriander leaves, onions, salt and black pepper. Mix them well and blend it in a food processor to form a coarse mixture. Now add rest of the ingredients and keep it in the refrigerator for about an hour. Divide and shape the mixture into small balls and flatten with your hand. Deep fry until brown. Serve it warm.

Note: Mixed spice is a mixture of traditional 7 spices that is available in the supermarkets.
