Servings

Makes 14 falafel

Ingredients

1½ cups dried chickpeas
½ cup loosely packed parsley
½ cup loosely packed cilantro
¼ cup dill leaves
¼ cup mint leaves
⅓ cup diced shallot
1 teaspoon baking powder
2½ teaspoons Kosher salt
3 tablespoons Salt-Free Sugar-Free Six Spice
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
vegetable oil for frying

Serve with:
Toum
Zhug

How To Prepare

Place chickpeas in a container with enough water to cover by about 2 inches above the chickpeas. Soak overnight, in a refrigerator. When chickpeas have rehydrated, strain then dry very well (there should be about 3¾ cups of chickpeas). Place the chickpeas in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients except for the flour and oil. Pulse until finely chopped, but not pureed. Add the flour and pulse a couple more times to combine. Scrape into a bowl and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Pour oil into a heavy skillet or pot until it is about 1- to 1½-inches up the side. Heat over medium high heat until oil is between 350° and 375°. Remove the falafel mix from the refrigerator and make balls roughly the size of a golf ball. When oil is hot, place balls, working in batches as to not overcrowd the pot, and cook on first side until golden brown; about 3-4 minutes. Flip the balls and cook until that side is brown; another 3 minutes or so. Remove from oil and drain well. Serve hot with Toum and Zhug sauces.
