Falafel Recipe

Falafel is an Arab food, which is a fried vegetarian fritters are often served along with hummus and tahini sauce. The appearance of falafel comes from Middle East probably from Egypt. These fritters are light green color inside. Falafel is a great source of protein for people who have cut meat in their diet. Falafel has very low in fat and low cholesterol so which is very much healthy for your health.

It is a simple fritter of ground chickpeas, which is filled with garlic and herbs and which is fried into a glorious revelation of inexpensive, filling food. Falafel is wrapped in a pita and topped with the usual suspects of cucumber-yogurt sauce, tomato and you can also try with olives.

Overnight or Quick Soak?

To make Falafel there are two methods for soaking the chickpeas.
The first is to soak the chickpeas at a room temperature of 20 to 24 hours. The second option is when you forgot to soak the chickpeas, quickly boil the chickpeas and set them aside to soak for an hour which probably the best method to do. The chickpeas should be enough to break with your finger but still have a bite to them.

The Simple Pan-Fry

Generally home cooks are little bit of worrying of deep fry, so instead of making deep-frying falafel a simple pan-fry will quickly and easily brown the fritters without making a huge mess.
