Mini Felafels With Tomato Salsa


  • 1½ cup dried chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 small brown onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup fresh continental parsley leaves washed, dried thoroughly
  • 1/2 cup burghul
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Ground black pepper
  • 325gm jar mild tomato salsa, to serve


Place the chickpeas in a bowl and cover with plenty of cold water. Cover and set aside overnight to soak.

Place the burghul in a fine sieve and rinse under cold running water. Drain. Place in a small bowl and set aside for 30 minutes.

Drain the chickpeas and place in the bowl of a food processor with the burghul, onion, parsley, flour, coriander, baking powder, garlic and pepper. Process until combined and finely chopped.

Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into round 3/4 inch thick patties. Heat a large non stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook half the patties for 2-3 minutes each side, until golden. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Repeat with remaining patties. Serve felafels hot or at room temperature with salsa and a large mixed salad.
