I already made chickpeas balls, so this is not new, but it might be new for someone, and it’s a nice recipe. Falafel is originally a north Africa dish, and I tried them during a holiday to Egypt. They were the sultans of my trip. This is an easier rendition, with eggs.
200 gr chickpeas – ceci
onion (shallot) – cipolla (scalogno)
parsley – prezzemolo
cumin – cumino
coriander – coriandolo
nutmeg – noce moscata
1 egg – 1 uovo
grated bread – pangrattato
Prepare the spices and chop the onion – preparate le spezie e tritate lo scalogno.
Chop the (precooked) chickpeas, then mix all the ingredients (some bread too), make some balls and roll them in the bread * Tritate i ceci (precotti), poi mescolate tutto (un po’ di pane va anche dentro il misto), fate delle polpettine e impanatele nel pane
Fry carefully, for they burn very quickly * Friggete con cautela perché si arrossano molto velocemente
This is one of the most beautiful songs ever written and Mark Knopfler is one of the greatest musician ever. A real Sultan of swing.
