Falafel
« on: October 11, 2020, 04:12:11 am »
Hi Guys - I've just had an epic fail with a falafel recipe from the Tmix+ magazine.
They just totally dissolved in the oil - subsequently the chooks have had a very satisfying lunch.
I found this old recipe of Chookies from many years ago and wonder if anyone has made it, or has any comments or suggestions?
This is the recipe -
1 onion
1 large clove of garlic
1 400g tin chickpeas
falafel mix ( use "Mount Zero" organic mix)
handful of corriander (green) or parsley and a few mint leaves.

Drop onion and garlic onto moving blades, speed 7, until chopped
scrape down and add 1 tablespoon of oil
cook 100, speed 1, 4 mins.
Tip in chickpeas, water and peas
roughly chop corriander or mint and parsley and add to bowl
speed 7, 6 secs.
Add 1  1/2 cups of mix,  ::, until incorporated
sit for 15 mins

Roll into small balls (I use a small ice cream scoop),  flatten slightly and shallow fry until brown.
Serve with a yogurt dip.

Gee that isn't good Amanda. Not a cheap magazine either. I've never made it, so I can't help.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I have not tried this one, either, Amanda, but if you were in the mood, it might work if you baked the falafel instead of deep frying it.

I'm sure Chookie will be on here soon with some answers for you.

Thanks - I've had a quick chat with Chookie.  ;D
