How to make Carrot Hummus & Falafel Wrap

  • To make the carrot hummus, heat the Olive & Flaxseed Oil in a pan. Add the diced carrots and roast them until cooked through. Turn off the heat and allow the carrots to cool
  • Blend the sesame seeds into a smooth paste in the blender, by adding a little water. Add the remaining ingredients into the blender, including the roasted carrots, and blend to a smooth hummus.
  • Give it a taste and adjust the seasonings accordingly. Keep aside or refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Next, prepare the falafel. Combine all the ingredients, except the Olive & Flaxseed oil in a food processor. Blend to make a coarse, thick paste. 
  • Divide the falafel batter into small portions of the size of a Ping-Pong ball, and flatten them slightly.
  • Heat a Kuzhi Paniyaram Pan, add 1/2 teaspoon of Olive & Flaxseed Oil into each cavity.
  • Place the shaped falafel into the cavities, and pan fry them until it is crisp and browned on both sides. Add few more drops of oil when you flip over to fry them on the other side. This will help in getting the even color for the falafels. Once done, keep them side.
  • To begin making the Carrot Hummus Falafel Wrap, toss the tomatoes and onions in salt, pepper.
  • Place the tortilla on a flat surface. Place the lettuce leaves on the tortillas. Next, spread some hummus in the center, and add the hot falafel.  Next, top it with tomatoes, onions, avocado and Tabasco sauce, and fold into a wrap and serve immediately.
