mmmm yum i love falafel, i dont know a recipie for it but i know its base is chick peas and garlic.....from there just messa round till you find something you like.......

for a recipie which is tasty........get falafel, roll it into balls......throw them in the oven on bake for about 20 minutes on 180....pull them out roll them in pesto and roll again in bread crumbs.....

yummm

good pesto recipie.....

100 mls oil (i like using olive oil)
heaps of chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper

You can buy Falafel mix in the supermarket (just add water stuff), but it's supposed to be deep fried and doesn't really work if you don't have a deep fryer.

mmmm pesto is so good, my mum makes the best pesto ive ever tasted :D

i have no deep fryer :(

the only prob with my mums falafel is that you can taste the chickpeas to much, I dont really like chick peas by them selvs, so maybe she just gotta add more spices :twisted:

I love my mum

falafel

Postby Naked Lunch » Tue Oct 22, 2002 12:30 pm

falafel doesnt need to be deep fried....i dont have a deep fryer, so i just pan fry it, bake in the oven, poach it in boiling water....then roll in breadcrumbs.....sweet!!

I cook 'em in the fry pan too, but I just think the ones from my local Kebab place are waaaayyyyyy better.

I guess my wording was wrong. They work but taste better deep fried. (In my humble opinion).

:wink:

Mean falafel

Postby sarah » Fri Oct 25, 2002 3:56 pm

there is an awesome pre mixed one at the supermarket - by the hummus and stuff, i think it is made by a company called olive grove, or something or other grove and it is awesome, (green lid on the container) you just put tea spoons of it in a frying pan with a little oil. yum. all vegan goodness. i think its about $5-$6 but it makes probably about 40 or so.

just pulling this thread back from the edge of the next page, but about deep fryers, all you need is to fill a pot with oil, and scoop your stuff out with one of those spoon things with holes in :D

dont spill it. oil fires = bad

yeah, olive grove falafel mix is really good. but my mums falafel is best, one time rupert, you should come to my house and ill make it from her recipe, its an italian version, but it tastes like turkish place with capsicum in it.

Hi

I found this post pretty late but I have the best Falafel recipe in the world!

You soak dry chickpeas in water overnight and shred them with coriander and heaps of onions and heaps and heaps of fresh parsley in a food precessor, Add salt, nutmeg and Corn flour and you're good to go. But the most important thing is a proper Falafel Maker or some spell it felafel. I found the original Falafel Scoop on http://www.madbuy.com.au from Australia - shipping was free and they have different sizes.

Ask me if you need help making the falafel Balls.

i have a few more tricks ssuch as sesame seeds on the coating etc.. ;)
