Baked Falafel ;)

This was funny, I followed the recipe and did everything I was supposed to, but something went wrong. When I wanted to fry them, they all disappeared in oil:) so I baked them in the oven. Well, they were low-fat at least!

  1. Ingredients:
    225g dried chickpeas, soaked overnight in cold water
    1 tbsp tahini
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp turmeric
    1 tsp ground coriander
    ½ tsp cayenne pepper
    2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
    juice of 1 small lemon
    vegetable oil, for frying

    Drain the soaked chickpeas and place them in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Process until finely chopped but not puréed. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and set it aside for at least 30 minutes, covered in the refrigerator. Wet your hands and shape the mixture into 12 balls. Press the tops down slightly to flatten. Heat 5cm of oil in a deep pan or wok. Fry the balls in batches for 3 – 4 minutes, or until lightly golden. Drain on kitchen paper and serve immediately.
