Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Soak chickpeas and beans in water for 18-24 hours. Drain thoroughly and remove any loose skins.

    2. Add onion, garlic, spring onion and dill to bowl. Chop 3sec/Sp5. Scrape down sides of bowl.

    3. Add about a third of the soaked beans and chickpeas into the bowl. Mix 15secs/speed5. Repeat if necessary to achieve a cous cous like consistency. Empty mixture into another container/bowl.

    4. In two batches, repeat step 2 with remaining chickpeas and beans. Empty mixture into bowl with the first batch.

    5. Add all remaining ingredients into the chickpea/bean mixture and stir with a fork until thoroughly combined. For best results, chill mixture in the fridge for an hour or two before cooking.

    6. Roll blended ingredients into palm sized balls with hands and flatten slightly.

    7. Heat oil to 180 degrees. Fry falabel in small batches to achieve a brown colour all over - you may need to turn during frying to achieve even colour.

    8. Remove falafel from oil, drain on paper towel and serve immediately.


* If desired, lightly roll falafel balls in sesame seeds before or after cooking.

Can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    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!
