Traditional falafel recipes using dried chickpeas can be time-consuming. Soaking the beans and removing the shells is not ideal for those with a busy lifestyle. This recipe for falafel contains few ingredients which cut down on preparation time. It's perfect for those who want an easier version of falafel.
Combine chickpeas, garlic, onion, parsley, coriander, cumin, salt, and pepper (to taste) in a medium bowl. Add flour and combine well.
Mash chickpeas, making sure to mix ingredients together. You can also combine ingredients in a food processor. You want the result to be a thick paste.
Form the mixture into small balls, about the size of a ping-pong ball. Slightly flatten.
Fry in 2 inches of oil at 350 F until golden brown (2 to 5 minutes).
