Ingredients

4 cups chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
cooked
2 large eggs
beaten
3 cloves garlic
crushed
½ cup scallions, spring or green onions
finely minced
½ cup celery
finely minced
½ teaspoon cumin
ground
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
½ teaspoon turmeric
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
*
1 dash black pepper
*
1 ½ teaspoons salt

Directions

Mash chickpeas well (make sure they are cooked well enough to be mashable).

Combine with other ingredients. Chill well. With floured hands, make the batter into one-inch-diameter balls.

Dust each one lightly with flour.

Heat a two inch pool of oil in heavy skillet to 365 degrees.

Deep fry felafel until golden brown, serve immediately.

MY MODIFICATIONS: I usually use 1 to 2 teaspoon of cayenne because I like them spicy.

I usually heat the oil in my wok and then drop the batter into the wok by spoonfuls.

Don't put too many in the wok at a time or the temp. will drop.

I peel, seed and slice cucumber, cube tomato and grab a bunch of alfalfa sprouts and tuck them into a pita with some ranch dressing
