Falafel Frankie...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: ,

As i am trying some middle eastern recipes this days, this is my first recipe. I made falafel.Falafel is a fried ball or patty made from spiced chickpeas and/or fave beans. Originally from Egypt, falafel is a popular form of fast food in the Middle East. It is mostly served alone as a snack or in bread called as pita bread along with salads, pickled vegetables and hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini based sauces.I made this falafel and made a frankie from them. Its taste was nice and different.We must try some different cuisine for a change sometimes.


For Falafel:

1 cup chickpeas
2 table spoon lapsi rava(wheat semolina)
1 table spoon besan
3/4 cup chopped corainder leaves
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 table spoon sesame seeds
1 tea spoon corainder powder
1/2 tea spoon cumin powder
1/4 tea spoon pepper powder
3-4 green chillis
1 table spoon parsley
4-5 garlic cloves

For Salad:
1 cup chopped cabbage
1/2 cup sliced onion
1 table spoon lemon juice
pepper powder

For Frankie:
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup maida(all purpose flour)
1/2 tea spoon baking powder
1 table spoon butter

1/2 cup Tahini Sauce


Soak the chickpeas in water for min 7-8 hours.Now grind chickpeas along with lapsi rava, besan,green chillis, garlic,corainder,cumin powder,corainder powder,pepper powder,parsleyand baking powder.Add very little water while grinding, it should form a very dry course paste.Keep the mixture covered for 1-2 hours.Then mix raw chopped onions, salt and sesame seeds in it.

To make the dough for frankies mix wheat flour,maida,salt,butter and baking powder and kned it using cold water.Keep the dough for 30 mins.

Make small balls of the prepared chickpeas mixture and flatten them on hand.Deep fry them till golden brown and crisp.Falafel are ready.You can enjoy them wid tahini sauce also.

Now to make frankie, make rotis of the kneded dough.To make salad mix cabbabe and onion and add salt and lemon juice.Keep it for 10 mins and them add pepper powder.

To make the frankie, first apply tahini sauce to the roti, then add fried falafel in line as shown below.Add salad.

Role into a tight role and seal.Frankie is ready.

NOTE: This dish is not mush spicy, as middle eastern dishes are not as spicy as our indian dishes.If you can want you can add some spices to your choice to suit your taste.
