Red Lentil Falafel
This Red Lentil Falafel is probably the easiest and closest version to a good all chickpea falafel version.
- 1 cup dry red lentils
- 2 cups water
- 1 small onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 cup chopped parsley
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp cumin
- 2 tbsp flour
- 3-4 tbsp oil for frying
Cover red lentils with water and soak for about one hour until doubled in size.
Drain the lentils and add to a food processor together with the rest of ingredients except flour.
Blend everything until you get green paste like consistency.
Add flour, mix well and form little balls. You should be able to make about 20 falafel.
Heat up the oil in the pan and fry each falafel on every side until crunchy. Enjoy!
