First, make the falafel mix

  • Put all the falafel ingredients into a food processor and whizz them up into a thick paste
  • Take a spoonful of the mixture out of the food processor, roll it up into a ball in the palm put on a plate
  • Repeat this process until all the falafel mixture has been used up

Next, make the batter

  • Put the batter ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix them up until you have a creamy, thick batter

Then, coat the falafel in batter and fry
