Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Whiz the beans and the chickpeas in a food processor and process until smooth (but not pasty; it should hold some texture)
  2. Process the ginger, onion, garlic, herbs and the spices in the processor separately. Add to the processed beans and chickpea mix and pulse in the processor once again.
  3. Chill (not freeze) the mixture for at least 30 minutes. Remove from the fridge and add Baking powder and salt.
  4. Heat oil (as desired) to a frying pan. And fry the Falafel until dark brown on both sides. I did not deep fry the Falafel.
  5. Serve with Pita bread, hummus and tabbouleh. Or, they taste amazing in a Sandwich (I call them Leftover Falafel Sandwich)
