Dardanelles Falafal Recipe- from the cookbook 'Adventure for your Palate' Dardanelles Falafal Recipe- from the cookbook 'Adventure for your Palate'
Number of Servings: 32


    2 cans garbanzo beans, drained
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 celery ribs, chopped
    loose C. Washed parsley, chopped
    C extra virgin olive oil
    3 eggs
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp paprika
    tsp cayenne pepper
    tsp black pepper
    4 tbl lemon juice
    1 C. Bread crumbs
    to 1 C flour
    1 Tbl. Crushed garlic
    Oil for frying
    Yogurt sauce


makes 32 1.5 inch patties

Place the garbanzo beans in a food processor and whiz until they lose shape.

Add the onion and celery; continue to process until all of the vegetables are in very small pieces

Add the parsley, oil, eggs, spices, and the lemon juice.

Mix until a paste forms; tighten up the paste with bread crumbs and flour.

Add the garlic, and adjust consistency with more lemon juice, if needed. The paste should hold togethor when formed into patties, but they shouldnt be dry.

Fry patties in hot oil until golden brown. Serve warm or cold with yogurt sauce.

Note-When I made it I found through trial and error that the food processor was not happy when I did garbanzo beans then added onion and celery(it wouldnt chop the new stuff) so in my second batch I switched the order and chopped the onion and celery, then added garbanzo beans and it worked much much better. And really the smaller the pieces, the better and as always dont skimp on the spices!!

    These didn't taste exactly what I am used to, but they were very good. It was kind of challenging to get the mix balled up, so I added a lot of extra bread crumbs & flour. Next time I will add some more spices as well. - 12/28/11
