Falafels are usually prepared from Chickpeas. In simpler terms it is like our southindian paruppu vadai 😉 Instead of Channa Dal this one is made predominantly from Chickpeas. It is popular in Mediterranean cuisine. Have prepared different variations of Chickpea falafels but this is the first time I tried preparing Falafels with Red Kidney Beans and instead of deep frying I baked them in the oven. Great snack option for Adults and kids too if they are not choosy like mine 😝 Yesterday A took a bite of it and gave some weird expression but like always I shall keep trying 😬 She loves deep fried falafels though.
I used one can of Red Kidney Beans which was approximately 240grams. It yielded 14 medium sized Falafels. Have freezed some of them to use later this week..Am starting 30-Day blogging challenge like last year. However this time am focussing only on dinner recipes and posts. This is mainly to be accountable on what I eat for dinner, the time I eat and also the portion. Hope the dinner posts and ideas help you too
