Chickpeas And Oats Falafel Balls Recipe

The Chickpea Oats Falafel Balls Recipe is a classic street food of Middle East made from chickpeas. The traditional recipe is made from chickpeas, but this recipe has an additional healthy twist and that’s by using Saffola Masala Oats. This recipe also used a Kuzhi Paniyaram pan to fry the falafel, making it healthier than the deep fried version.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chickpeas, soaked for 8 hours
  • 1 Packet Saffola Masala Oats
  • 1 tablespoon of gram flour or all-purpose flour
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • a small bunch of parsley, chopped (you can also use coriander)
  • 1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon per falafel (added the amount of oil)

How to make Chickpeas And Oats Falafel Balls

  • To begin making the Lebanese Chickpea Falafel Recipe, we will first cook the soaked chickpeas until it is very soft. I personally like to use a pressure cooker
  • You will know the chickpeas is cooked well, when you press it between your fingers, it will mash up
  • The next step is to proceed to make the falafel
  • Combine all the ingredients, including the cooked chickpeas except the 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 lightly
  • I use a Kuzhi Paniyaram Pan to fry the falafels and the result is very similar to the deep fried ones
  • Add a half a teaspoon of oil into each of the cavities, 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
  • You can alternatively, heat oil for deep-frying and deep fry these falafels until browned evenly on all sides
  • Serve the falafel hot along with Hummus, Tabbouleh Salad with Pita Bread or a wrap
