    Do you use the packet mix or make your own? I've eaten falafel in restaurants but the ones I've made at home, from a packet, don't taste as good. Just wondering how you make them?

    I usually make them or I'm lucky enough to have a great local Lebanese restaurant that I sometimes get from there! My sister lived in Israel for 5 years so I've always used her Israeli falafel recipe - you can use tin chickpeas but I use dry , you just have to remember the night before to soak them !

    Ingredients:
    2 cups dry chickpeas ( soak overnight and just rinse the next morning)
    1 small brown onion, roughly chopped
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    3 cloves garlic
    1 1/2 tbsp plain flour
    Pinch sea salt
    2 tsp cumin
    1 tsp ground coriander
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    Pinch of ground cardamom
    Grapeseed or peanut oil for frying

    Literally put all in a food processor and pulse until all mixed - don't over process or it will be too runny

    Cover and put into fridge for 60 mins

    Mould into little cakes and shallow fry - my sister puts cayenne pepper in hers but for DS I leave it out

    @Elijahs Mum I love reading your recipe ideas! You've helped me so much with feeding my 1 yr old dd over the last few months and I too use chia and seeds in nearly everything :-)

    A snack suggestion - frozen peas...still frozen!

    My daughter LOVES them, and the novelty hasn't worn off. Easy to prepare too

    So does mine! I don't get it but she always has to have some when I'm cooking. Strange little critters.

    @Elijahs Mum
    is 2 cups dried chickpeas the equivalent of 1 can of chickpeas or 2?

    I'm feeding 2 adults and a toddler, not sure on quantities. Also, can the falafels be frozen before or after cooking?

    Thanks!
