Also known as Felafel from scratch, made in nugget-sized bites and served to little people with plum sauce as veg chicken nuggets. Adults may prefer hummus and a pita with crisp lettuce, tomatoes, and pepper strips.
2 cups dry chickpeas, soaked and cooked. results in about 4-5 cups.
Mash well and then add:
2 Tbsp. dried parsley or 1/4 cup fresh
1 Tsp. salt
1 tsp. tumeric
dashes of tabasco sauce
1 tsp. cumin
5 cloves garlic minced
1 small onion diced small, about 1/2 cup
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup water
Mix well then add 1/2 - 3/4 cup flour, knead well. Should make little patties without feeling either too moist or too dry.
Fry in hot oil, flip and fry other side. go for a nice deep brown. Flip onto a cookie sheet covered in a tea towel to drain.
Serve warm with plum sauce for the little people. French fries would add to the illusion. ;o)
