Falafel - fried in coconut oil
Updated: Oct 19
These are a perfect side dish, main course, or snack.
When craving something fried, but want something more healthy, these can be just what you need!
These falafels are made with chickpeas, onion, garlic, spices and then fried in coconut oil.
175 g chickpeas
100 g yellow onion
6 g of garlic
1 handful of fresh coriander or 1/2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp potato flour
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp paprika powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp chili powder or cayenne
5 - 8 tbsp of Graham flour (chickpea flour)
Add everything, except the flour, into your food processer and mix until a smooth paste.
Add the flour bit by bit until a firm dough.
Add about 1 tbsp of coconut oil into a frying pan. I like using my small iron pan.
Make small balls of dough, and fry them. Let it firm a nice crust on both sides. Then let cool on a before serving them.
It`s perfect making a whole batch of these if you have the time. Falafels can go in the freezer, or you can keep some in an airtight container for some days. Anytime you need a spicy, fried treat - these are delicious!
Enjoy your food, and enjoy your day.
