These crispy chickpea and sesame seed patties are quick and easy to make at home and are a great meat–free meal. These falafel are based on those that my Egyptian grandfather used to make. I have happy memories of these being fried up for breakfast in my grandparents’ house. Drizzled with tahini sauce (recipe below) and eaten almost straight from the hot oil – the smell and the taste were unreal!
A word of warning; it requires that dried chickpeas are soaked overnight. Tinned chickpeas won’t get you the right texture.
