    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Coating
  1. Place cubed parmesan in Thermomix and mill on speed 9/ 15 seconds.Combine Parmesan and polenta in a separate bowl

  2. Falafel
  3. Place all remaining ingredients in the Thermomix and blend for 15 seconds/ speed 6 to form a coarse paste.

     

     

    Form the falafel into golf ball sized spheres and coat in mixture of polenta and parmesan.

     

     

    These can be cooked straight away but they improve in texture on sitting in the fridge for 30 minutes. They can be prepared well in advance and stored in fridge for three days

     

     

    To cook the falafel put equal quantities of butter and oil in a non - ”stick frypan and shallow fry. I used 2 Tbsp of oil and 2 tbsp of butter. Cook until crisp and golden.

  • Even after putting the balls

    Submitted by ccharles on 8. January 2016 - 13:58.

    Even after putting the balls in the fridge for hours prior to pan frying they completely fell apart. Baked the rest in the oven & they held together nicely but i just found them a bit flavourless sorry, also the rice didnt really grind so they are definitley crunchy! Not sure what i did wrong tmrc_emoticons.(

    I have made these many times! I have shallow fried them and also baked them in the oven to try and keep them in the correct shape.  No matter what they look like when cooked... my family devours them!  Thank you for another fantastic recipe! tmrc_emoticons.)

  • These were awesome. I omitted

    Submitted by EmFidirikkos on 18. July 2015 - 07:55.

    These were awesome. I omitted the coating and served with sweet chilli sauce mixed with yoghurt. they are a little fragile but firm up and hold together once cooked.

  • No the rice and chickpeas are

    Submitted by foodieforever on 30. September 2014 - 07:38.

    No the rice and chickpeas are both uncooked.  The rice ends up being ground - so I suppose it turns to ground rice. And the chickpeas turn to ground chickpeas like besam flour. Hope that makes sense.

  • These were fantastic. I made

    Submitted by Mrs_Squibble on 26. September 2014 - 12:05.

    These were fantastic. I made them as finger food for my toddler, flattening them into discs before cooking. I ate them in flat bread with tomato, cucumber, parsley, corriander and yoghurt. Definately making again!
