Falafel with Tomato Relish Recipes

Ingredients :


2 cups chickpeas

3 cups water

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tbsp water

1/2 tsp baking powder

oil, for deep-frying

Tomato Relish:

2 medium tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped

1/4 medium Lebanese cucumber, finely chopped

1/2 green capsicum, finely chopped

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp sugar

2 tsp chili sauce

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

Method :

To make Falafel: Soak chickpeas in water for 4 hours or overnight. Drain and place chickpeas into food processor bowl. Using the pulse action, process for 30 seconds or until they are finely ground. Add onion, garlic, parsley, coriander, cumin, water and baking powder and process 10 seconds or until mixture is a rough paste. Leave mixture to stand for 30 minutes.

To make tomato relish: Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine; set aside. Shape heaped tablespoons of Falafel mixture into balls. Squeeze out excess liquid using your hands. Heat oil in a deep heavy-based pan. Gently lower prepared Falafel balls on a spoon into moderately hot oil. Cook the Falafel in batches of five for 3-4 minutes per batch. Shake spoon slightly to prevent sticking. When brown, carefully remove from oil with slotted spoon. Drain well on paper towels. Serve hot or cold Falafel on a bed of Tomato Relish or in pita bread with Relish and Hummus.

Note: If mixture is too wet, and doesn't form easily into balls, add a small amount of plain flour.
