A healthy, easy, homemade falafel recipe for any time snack/lunch.

Ingredients (serves 3 | makes 10 balls)

  • 1 cup Dry chickpeas
  • 1/2 Onion chopped
  • 1 Green chilli
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Coriander and mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Cloves garlic


  1. Soak chickpeas in water and add baking soda. Keep it for overnight or at least 5-6 hours.
  2. Next day wash the Chickpeas with clean water make sure all the baking soda is washed off.
  3. In a grinder put chickpeas, coriander, onion, red chilli powder,salt, garlic cloves and add water little by little while grinding. It should come up as a fine paste a bit thick not runny in consistency.
  4. Form it in a ball shape or scoop up in spoon and fry. One cup will make approx 9-10 falafel depending on their size. Eat it with any dip or sauce or you can make a falafel wrap.


This recipe is my husband's favourite, he love falafel and it is not easy to find falafel here in Perth so I decided to make my own falafels and now its been 5 years I am making it and my husband really loves it. I make falafel wrap and with salad I always add boiled egg because this is the traditional way of serving falafels.

  • Never had them, but they do sound rather nice. Be a healthier choice too I think, thanks for sharing, I will give them a try.


  • A few days I ordered some Falafel and salad whilst dining out at a pub. They were so dry and tasteless I could barely swallow them. I’ll have to try and make my own.


  • Never even giving making these myself a thought. Thanks for sharing.


  • I love falafels but I have never made them from scratch. Thank-you for sharing your recipe.


  • I love these in a wrap, I used to buy them from a deli years ago but definitely will try making these now. Thank you.

  • I’ve only tried to make falafel once….from a packet and wasn’t the best. I’m sure from scratch will be much better

  • Wow, I have all these ingredients except for the fresh coriander. I might try making these this week.
