Falafel with hummus and tahini sauce

Falafel with hummus and tahini sauce is a lovely dish from the Middle East. Falafel are chickpea cakes with a lot of flavor, and several of the countries in the area believe that they are the country of origin. They can be served with different types of accessories, e.g. as I have done here or in pita. It is important that all the other ingredients are ready before the falafles.


100 g dry chickpeas

100 g dry horse beans without shell (split broad beans, fava beans)

4 spring onions

4 garlic cloves

20 g fresh coriander leaves

15 g fresh parsley leaves

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 tsp ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon malt coriander

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

1 ts salt

Soak chickpeas and beans in water overnight or mine. 8 hours. Pour off the water.

Mix everything and drive to fine mash in blender or hand blender. Put cold in a tight box until to fry. Use falafel sticks or roll for buns and fry in 5 parts corn or canola oil, add 1 part olive oil until they have acquired a nice color. It takes 3-5 min. Fish them up and let them drain on paper towels. Serve the falafels as soon as they are ready.
