Falafel is a famous meal served in the Levant and Egypt. It is highly nutritious, deliciously flavored and preferred by all of us.
You can have it as a healthy meal if you follow this recipe:
First, soak the humus beans and crushed beans in water for 8-10 hours.
Mix all the ingredients using a blender, except baking powder and roasted sesame.
Run the blender on a medium speed, and speed up after then.
Add water to the mixture as needed.
Then add the baking powder, and mix well.
(If you want to keep the mixture in freezer, don’t add the baking powder.)
Take a loaf of whole wheat bread and place falafel dough on it. Sprinkle roasted sesame. Bake in the top rack of oven at 180°.
When the falafel is ready, put it in the upper rack of your grill for a few minutes.
Grilled falafel is served with tomato, cucumber and watercress. It can also be served with humus or yogurt.
