Falafel, my all time favorite Mediterranean dish. I love to have falafel sandwich anytime of the day. Who doesn't know this in India. These are crunchy from outside and soft from center. Try this with hummus in pita bread. Pita bread recipe i will post soon. 

1 Cup Overnight Soaked Chickpeas 

4-5 Cloves Garlic
1 Big Onion Chopped
1 tsp Sesame Seeds
1 tsp Lime Juice
1 tbsp Green Chili paste
Oil for Deep Frying

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Cumin Powder

1 Bread Slice

1 tbsp Coriander Powder
1 Cup Chopped Cilantro/Parsley
Salt and Pepper as Taste

1)  Put chickpeas, sesame seeds, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin powder, coriander powder, Baking powder, bread slice, green chili, garlic and cilantro in food processor to make course mixture. 
2)  Add 1/2 cup water in the mixture and pulse again in food processor. Now you will get a mixture that is suitable to make a ball that stay a single piece.
3)  Now make small balls out of the mixture, as a tip i can say that you can use ice cream scoop to make equal sized balls.
4)  Fry balls in preheated oil till they turn golden brown in color. If you see the mixture is not sticking together once you put in oil for frying then little All Purpose Flour can be used to mix in the mixture.
