Egyptian Falafel

This is the original version of falafel, like the one made in Egypt, where it is called "ta'ameya."

Ingredients for Falafel

  • 1.1 pounds (500 grams) green fava beans (soaked for 24 hours and dried well)
  • 1 cup cilantro mixed
  • 1/2 cup scallions coarsely chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves crushed
  • Salt
  • red chili peppers to taste
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • oil for frying

Instructions

  • 1. Grind the herbs and garlic in a food processor, add the fava beans and mix until a smooth paste is obtained. Season, add the baking soda and continue mixing until the ingredients form into a lump. Set aside for an hour.

  • 2. Heat the oil in a wide-bottomed pot over a medium flame.

  • 3. Create round, flat patties out of the falafel batter and fry them until they turn golden brown on both sides. Transfer to a dish lined with paper towels.

Variation:

Right before frying them, you can coat the falafel balls with sesame seeds.
