Falafel recipe

1 cup dried (Chic Peas) Garbanzo Beans, soaked in water whole overnight

1 cup dried shelled beans, soaked overnight and drained

1/2 cup peeled and finely chopped yellow onions

3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

1 cup water

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup fine wheat soaked and cooked and broken.

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

1/4 Tbs. salt

2 tsp. ground cumin

2 tsp. ground coriander

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Oil for deep-frying

Grind Beans (Chic peas) and beans with fine blade on your meat grinder. Add in all the remaining ingredients and let the mixture stand for 1 hour. Form into little patties 1/3 inch thick and 1-1/2 inches round. Or, you can form them into balls the size of walnuts. Deep-fry in oil until toasty brown and crunchy on the outside, about 4 minutes.
