Instructions
  1. Drain the water from the chickpeas and pat them dry.
  2. In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, parsley, onion, garlic, spices, baking soda, and lemon juice. Pulse the mixture until it becomes a chunky batter.
  3. Transfer the falafel mixture to a bowl and constitute with flour. You may need to add a small amount more if the mixture is not holding together. Once you have shaped your falafels (either flat or in a ball) allow resting for 10 mins to hold their shape. You can stick them in the freezer if your kitchen is really warm.
  4. Heat oil in a pan for frying. Place falafels in the pan and shallow fry them about 3 mins on either side until fully cooked through. Alternately, you may choose to bake your falafels, rather than frying them.
  5. Combine the tahini paste, garlic, lemon juice and cumin. Add hot water to the dressing to thin it out.
  6. Arrange salad ingredients in bowl and top with fresh falafel. Add dressing and serve.
