    I made these today and they were really nice! My only complaint was that I would add more salt next time (but I did use that reduced sodium salt so it might have made a difference and I didn't measure it!) and maybe a bit of chilli as they were a little bland for my liking - although still tasty! Great recipe to add your own variations.

    Makes 12 falafel (mine made about 15)
    Syns per falafel: 0.5 (excl sauce)
    Sauce yields 5 tbsp - 0.5 syn/tbsp

    ¾ c water
    ¼ c bulgur
    3 c chickpeas
    ½ c fresh coriander
    ½ c spring onions
    1/3 c water
    2 tbsp self raising flour (7 syns)
    1 tbsp cumin
    ¾ tsp salt
    ¼ – ½ tsp cayenne
    3 garlic cloves

    Sauce (optional):
    1/2 c low fat natural yogurt
    1/2 tbsp tahini (2 syns)
    1/2 tbsp lemon juice

    1. Preheat oven to 220.

    2. Boil ¾ c water. Add the bulgur, remove and let stand for 30 mins then drain.

    3. Blitz the remaining ingredients in a food processor. Stir in the bulgur. Divide into 12-15 portions and bake for 10 mins on each side. (I turned the grill on and did an extra 2 mins on each sound to brown)

    4. For the sauce, mix together all ingredients and drizzle over the falafel.
