  • It's really hard to make. When I tried deep-frying 3 falafel balls, 1 of them mysteriously disappeared. The oil got really black after a while, indicating the missing ball has disintegrated into bits and pieces.

So, let's just go to Rami's.

Or you can try this


  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • parsley
  • cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp flour


  1. Soak chickpeas in water for overnight.
  2. Boil chickpeas for 30 minutes. Drain the water.
  3. Mash chickpeas and mix with all the other ingredients.
  4. Make falafel balls. Flatten and cover in flour (extra) well.
  5. Deep-fry. Make sure that they don't fall apart.
  6. Serve in pita-bread with cabbage, tomatoes, yogurt, tahini sauce, and fruit and vegetable sauce.
