Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Falafel. Falafel is a fried patty made with ground chickpeas and spiced using ground coriander and cumin. It is a really simple recipe, and is great in a sandwich bun with a salad and harissa yoghurt dip.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Onion
2. Garlic
3. Vegetable Oil
4. Chickpeas
5. Salt
6. Ground Cumin
7. Ground Coriander
8. Dried Parsley
9. An Egg

Bismillah, let's begin!

To start, take 1 small chopped onion and 1 crushed garlic clove.

Heat a few tablespoons vegetable oil in a pan, and add the onion and garlic. Fry on a low heat until softened.

Place the softened onion and garlic into a large bowl. 

Add 1 can chickpeas, drained.

Add salt, to taste.

Add 1 teaspoon ground cumin and 1 teaspoon ground coriander.

Mash the mixture with a potato masher or a fork, until the chickpeas have broken down.

Add 2 teaspoons dried parsley.

Finally, add an egg.

Stir to combine.

Heat more oil in a pan, and form the mixture into patties. Be careful as the mixture will be quite sticky. Fry in the hot oil for 4 minutes each side or until golden brown and firm.

Serve straight away garnished with lemon wedges and fresh coriander. Use the falafel like burgers and add to bread rolls with salad and harissa yoghurt.
