- 1 cup Kabuli Chana/white chick peas, soaked overnight

- Cook the soaked Kabuli Chana in the pressure cooker with 2 cups of water for 2 whistles. Cool.
- In a mixer/ blender add the drained Chana and mash/ coarse grind.
- Add all the other ingredients except the oil and grind to get a paste.
- Transfer from the mixer to a bowl and mix everything well.
- With your hands form small or medium sized balls or patties.
- Deep fry in hot oil like you would do for pakoras/fritters.
- Flip over to the other side whilst frying to ensure that the falafels are evenly fried.
- Drain falafel on kitchen tissues to remove excess oil.
- You can serve falafel hot with pita bread or serve as snack/starter with some sauce.
- But I served it like this fulkas, hummus, cheese slice, falafel and pickled cucumber and onion and dhania/
coriander leaves as garnish.
- Very very yum!!!
