Indian-Inspired Falafel Appetizer Instructions
Clean and wash the garbanzo beans, black eyed peas and green gram. Soak the lentils overnight/ 6-8 hours in excess water. Drain and set them aside.
Grind them to a coarse paste in a grinder without water. Mix in all the ingredients and let the mixture sit for 1-2 hours in refrigerator. Bring them down to room temperature and roll them into small balls using a falafel scoop or a spoon or a small ice cream scoop and place over a baking sheet covered with a parchment paper.
Heat 3 inches of oil in a deep cooking vessel (375 degrees) . Once the oil gets heated up, first fry 1 ball and if the balls lose shape, add little more flour for maintaining the shape.
Fry them in batches of 6 at a time for 2-3 minutes on one side or until they turn golden brown. Drain excess oil and serve with a salad/pita bread/tahini sauce.
