1 cup chick peas/garbanzo beans, soaked in water for 8–10 hours
1 packed cup dill leaves, chopped
1/4 cup coriander/cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic
1/2 inch ginger
2 green chilli
1 tsp chickpea flour, optional
salt to taste
oil for deep frying
Preparation and Cooking Instructions
Wash the chickpeas, put them in a bowl, and soak them in fresh water for 8–10 hours. Drain the water and keep aside.
Put all of the ingredients (except the chickpea flour and frying oil) in a mixer/blender and dry grind them to get a coarse mix. If the mix is too loose, add chickpea flour/besan to get the required consistency. The need to add chickpea flour arises only if the mix turns out too loose in consistency. The perfect consistency means you should be able to make firm balls from the mix. Transfer the mix to a bowl.
Pour oil in a pan for deep frying and heat it. Prepare lemon-sized balls from the mix and drop them into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd them.
Fry the balls on high flame for 4 minutes, turning them occasionally. Reduce the flame and continue frying until they turn brownish and crispy. Remove the balls, drain the oil, and place them on an absorbent paper.
Your dill leaf falafels are ready to eat. Serve them hot with tomato sauce or any other dip of your choice. Enjoy!
