Default Falafel

Falafel

1 cup dried garbanzo beans, soaked overnight and well drained
1 cup dried shelled fava beans, soaked overnight and well drained
1/2 cup garbanzo flour, can substitute whole wheat flour
1/4 cup fine bulgur wheat
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Oil for deep frying

Run the drained garbanzo beans and fava beans through the fine blade
on your meat grinder or in your food processor. Add more water if
necessary; mixture should be thick but not dry. Blend in all the
remaining ingredients and let the mixture stand at least an hour or
store in refrigerator for several days.

Form into little patties 1/3 inch thick and 1 1/2 inches round. Or,
you can
form them into balls. Deep-fry in oil until brown and crunchy on the
outside, about 4 minutes.

I make medium size patties and pan fry it in oil and eat with Greek
style salad. Could be used in sandwiches or Gyros.

I've had it in restaurants as gyros. It is very tasty. Can it be bought
already mixed so I could cook it at home? Too many ingredients for me to
make.

If you can find it, it comes dried. Just add water, let sit a bit, then
fry. It's in the section of the grocery store with the couscous, bean
dip and stuff like that.

I've had the brand available around here, and it's very good. There's
several types of add-water dips available.

I have seen Falafel mixes here in Oz where you just add
water to the dry mix, not sure what part of a supermarket
you would look for it.

We really enjoy falafel, particularly the ones that used to be made in
a local shop called The Sultan Market. Don't know why they stopped
making them but, they still make a fantastic shwarma.
So, we bought some falafel mix (just add water) at a large bulk food
chain in Canada called The Bulk Barn, to try making our own.
It was gross. Inedible.
Definitely going to try Andrea 2's recipe, probably this week-end.
