tasty recipe

I found this tasty recipe for falafel on BBC food. It looks delicious and it's great to make a double portion and stick in the freezer or for next days lnch box. I love falafel in wraps or jsut with sallad. But the absolute best falafel I ever ate was in Jerusalem, Israel - just amazing! They added red cabbage, and an absolutely divine dressing. Yum, yum, yum... :)

2 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
1 small onion , finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
400g can chickpeas , washed and drained
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander (or use more cumin)
handful parsley , chopped, or 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 egg , beaten

1.Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pan, then fry the onion and garlic over a low heat for 5 mins until softened. Tip into a large mixing bowl with the chickpeas and spices, then mash together with a fork or potato masher until the chickpeas are totally broken down. Stir in the parsley or dried herbs, with seasoning to taste. Add the egg, then squish the mixture together with your hands.
2.Mould the mix into 6 balls, then flatten into patties. Heat the remaining oil in the pan, then fry the falafels on a medium heat for 3 mins on each side, until golden brown and firm. Serve hot or cold with couscous, pitta bread or salad.

tänkte laga falafel ikväll, vad passande :=)

angående vår glassmaskin: vi köpte en philips HR2304: vi har bara använt den en gång än så länge, men är mycket nöjda! den är dessutom ganska liten och får bra plats (iaf i vårt fullproppade kök!)
