prep time20 min
cook time10 min


  • 400 gr dry chickpeas
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh coraindre
  • 1/2 onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 2 c. 1 tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • soak the chickpeas the night before in cold water.
  • After overnight in water, drain the chickpeas, and wipe them completely in a clean cloth or paper towel.
  • place the chickpeas in a chopper
  • Mix well in small strokes.
  • leave the chopper on and add all the ingredients, one by one: parsley, coriander, onion, garlic, cumin, black pepper, salt, lemon juice and baking soda.
  • If your falafels appear a little runny, add a little flour, sometimes I put a dumpling in the frying pan, if it stays well, so no need to add the flour
  • form falafel rings almost 3 cm in diameter.
  • place them progressively on absorbent paper
  • heat the oil well, lower the heat and fry the falafels on each side until you have a nice golden color.
  • enjoy a sandwich with a nice salad, and a good homemade Lebanese pita bread
