Yummy Falafels

 Crispy, hot and full of flavour. These easy falafels are perfect for party snack or a quick dinner and you only need 15 minutes to make them. Simple and yummy! I deep fried my falafels but I'm sure you could bake them if you preferred the healthier option.

Yummy Falafels
1 1/2 cup of chickpeas (I used the dried ones, soaked in water overnight)
2 cloves of garlic 
1 onion
1/2 teaspoon of chilli
pinch of pepper
1 teaspoon of salt 
1 teaspoon of cumin 
1 teaspoon of turmeric 
1 tablespoon dried parsley ( you can use fresh one if you have) 
1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. 
2. Meanwhile heat up small pan with a dash of oil. 
3. Shape them into small (ping pong sized) balls. Try to fry one for a few minutes. Be careful as they don't take long to fry. Try the first one and adjust the seasoning as preferred.
4.Perfect with pita bread or on their own with sweet chilli dip
. Enjoy!
