Dangerously Delicious !

Exam time . Study leave . Dull afternoon . Non-descript , Typical Bangalore weather .
Miasmic moods .
The only panacea - Something delectable and deep fried .
Seemingly simple , with no known , documented side effects while cooking or after eating  . Especially fell for the name - FALAFEL.

Such an easy , non-threatening recipe . Am I missing something ? Actually quite scary .

Ingredients :

  • Have a template ready on blogger with labels done , tittle decided and punch lines making a bee line in the mind . ( equivalent to pre-heating )
  • Camera .  Dedicated to my  family which still thinks food appears by magic in my home . Some of them  still think it is all photo shopped . And flood me with Q's like " You did This ?" " All of this ?"  Sigh . I have  turned into a new leaf.   err..Tree since my nostalgic, happy - "doing -nothing" days.
  • Soaked white chick pea -250 gms
  • Coarsely ground coriander seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • Finely powdered cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • A bunch of Coriander
  • A bunch of parsley
  • Roughly chopped onions
  • A few garlic pods
  • Salt to taste
Grind chickpea with salt , coriander ,parsley , onion , garlic and add the cumin and coriander powder.
Heat oil . Make medium sized balls out of the blended chickpea , flatten at the top and bottom ( for that look !)  and deep fry .

Made a coriander , green chilly + curd dip to go with this .

Not a great looker,this  Falafel . Very simple Recipe . Ingredients easily available in a kitchen like mine . Scores very high on taste however . And dangerously delicious . Just my kind of recipe !


Oh ! 'vadai' ya ? Was the response from S & S ! There you go .
