Gluten Free Moroccan Feast- Falafels


These have to be the best falafels I have every made! They take a little bit more time and care than my speedy falafels (link) but if you have the time and ingredients it is well worth it.


  • 400g of chickpeas (1 can)
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Handful of corriander
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp gram flour (plus more for coating)
  • Good amount of sunflower or vegetable oil


  1. Bring the chickpeas to the boil for around 5-10 minutes then rinse and drain
  2. Put all the ingredients bar the oil and gram flour into a food processor
  3. Stir in the table spoon of gram flour into the mixfalafel
  4. Make balls out of the mixture with your hands, about a large heaped tablespoon per ball
  5. Roll the balls individually in gram flour
  6. Heat up the oil in a saucepan (the smaller the saucepan the less oil you need)
  7. Carefully spoon the balls individually into pan, I would say a maximum of 5-6 per pan.
  8. Cook for around 3-5 minutes per side turn when the sides are golden brown. Repeat until all the balls are cooked. falafel2
