  1. Mill red lentils 1 min/speed 9. To get a finer consistency, place lentils into mixing bowl and then add in the simmering basket. This will keep the lentils down closer to the blades whilst milling.

  3. Add all other ingredients EXCEPT sesame and chop/combine 10 secs/speed 5. Depending on your choice of flour, you may have to add a little more flour to get a wet paste consistency that can be formed into balls.

  4. Form into balls and coat with sesame seeds. 

  5. Cook in 180C oven for 20 mins or until golden

  • Great recipe if you haven't

    Great recipe if you haven't overnight soaked some chickpeas! A winner for flavour and texture when oven baked thank you. I'll make again for sure, although I won't put the basket in when milling, that just made a mess, and I wasn't too keen on the tahini dip but the felafels were great.
