Falafel sandwich

These falafels turned out much crispier than my other recipe here.One of my friend told me to try this way and i liked it so much so i used it as a sandwich filling with some tahini sauce.An amazing sandwich with a Mediterranean twist :)

This makes a perfect weekend breakfast with your morning tea to wake you up :)

You need 

Bread slices as required
Chick peas 1cup
Garlic 2 pods
Coriander leaves 2 sprigs
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Lime juice a few drops
Salt to taste
Green chilli 1
Oil to deep/shallow fry 

  • Soak the chick peas for a few hours or overnight and drain the water completely.Coarsely grind this with the garlic,cumin, green chilli and coriander leaves.This mixture shouldn't be too fine it has to be coarse and grainy and do not add much water else you won\t be able to shape the falafels.
  • After grinding this add salt to taste and the lime juice.
  • Make small balls or patties of the mixture and deep/shallow fry them and drain on paper towel.

For the tahini spread: Mix 1 tsp of tahini paste with 2 tsp of yogurt and add salt and pepper to taste.

To assemble the sandwich:

  • Spread the tahini sauce on each slice of bread and arrange the falafels inside the bread slices with any vegetables in your fridge :) 
  • The falafels taste amazing with the tahini sauce just like that :)) 

  • Serve them as it is or toast them.I like them as it is reminded me of the falafel shawarmas i used to have when i was younger!
