Photo by:

These chickpea fritters can be enjoyed tucked into pita bread.

Yield: Makes 12 falafels

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 heaping cup dried chickpeas, soaked overnight in cold water
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying

Directions

1. Drain the soaked chickpeas. Process the chickpeas with the other ingredients until finely chopped but not purèed.

2. Transfer to a bowl. Let stand for at least 30 minutes (or up to 8 hours), covered in the refrigerator.

3. Pour enough oil into a large saucepan to come 2in (5cm) up the sides and heat over high heat to 350°F (170°C).

4. Moisten your hands with water and shape the mixture into 12 slightly flat balls. In batches, deep-fry in the oil about 3 minutes, or until golden. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve hot.
