    I have a recipe I use - this is from an old magazine

    Falafel

    Ingredients:

    225g/8oz dried chickpeas
    1 onion, peeled & finely chopped
    2 gralic cloves, peeled and crushed
    2 eggs, beaten
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp ground coriander
    1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
    1 tbsp chopped coriander
    2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley
    ΒΌ tsp baking powder
    Salt & freshly ground black pepper
    Fry Light

    To serve:
    Fat free natural yoghurt flavoured with chopped mint & red chilli

    Instructions:

    • Put the chickpeas in a large saucepan of water, boil for 45 minutes and drain well. Transfer to a food processor and add the onion, garlic, eggs, cumin, ground coriander, chilli & herbs. Process until you have a thick, smooth puree. Add the baking powder and seasoning & stir well. Transfer to a bowl and chill for 1 hour or overnight, if time permits.
    • When you are ready to cook the falafel, preheat the oven to 220c/Gas 7 and spray a baking tray with fry light. Take small pieces of the pureed chickpea mixture and form into little balls between your hands and then flatten them out slightly and arrange them on the prepared baking sheet.
    • Cook the falafel in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until crisp and golden. Serve immediately with a bowl of the yoghurt dip.

    Syns per serving:

    Yes - you just wouldn't need to boil them before blending
