In this article, we’ll show you how to make homemade falafel that’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.


  • 2 cups dried chickpeas
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Soak the chickpeas in water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  2. Drain the chickpeas and rinse them well.
  3. In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas until they are finely ground but not pureed.
  4. Add the onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, cumin, coriander, baking powder, salt, and pepper to the food processor. Pulse until everything is well combined and the mixture is finely minced.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large pot to 375°F.
  2. Form the chickpea mixture into small balls or patties, about 1-2 inches in diameter.
  3. Carefully place the falafel balls or patties into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pot.
  4. Fry the falafel for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to remove the falafel from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve the falafel in pita bread with fresh lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and tahini sauce.
