Prep Time20 minutes
Cook Time25 minutes
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mediterranean


  • 400 g Dehydrated Chickpeas
  • 1 Pissourkotiko Traditional Goat Halloumi , Charalambides Christis, cut in cubes
  • 1 cup fresh Parsley , leaves picked
  • 1 cup fresh Coriander , leaves picked
  • ½ cup fresh Mint , leaves picked
  • 1 Onion , roughly chopped
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Corn-starch
  • 1 tbsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp dry Coriander , ground
  • Pinch dry Cumin , ground
  • 300 ml Seed Oil for the frying , peanut or corn oil will also do
  • 1 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • Tahini Sauce
  • Pitta Breads , halved


  • From previous night soak the chickpeas in enough water to be covered plus 4 cm more.
  • In a food processor with the blades on add the halloumi and work until finely chopped. Remove from the food processor’s bowl and keep aside.
  • In the same bowl of the food processor again with the blades on add the herbs, parsley, coriander and mint along with the onion, garlic, corn-starch, baking soda, plus the ground coriander and cumin along with the salt. Work for about 30” until everything is finely chopped and mixed.
  • Rinse well the chickpeas and add to the herb mixture in the food processor. Pulse couple of times until a nice coarse paste is created. Be careful not to overwork and create a puree.
  • Add the chickpeas mixture in a bowl along with the chopped halloumi and mix well. Place the falafel mixture in the refrigerator, covered, for at 30’, or even overnight to be used for the next day.
  • Put a medium-large pan on medium heat, add the oil upto 1 cm high and heat up without burning.
  • In the meantime, spoon from the falafel mixture and shape the falafel patties and place on a flat dish. If the mixture is too dry then add some water.
  • Add to the hot pan 7-8 patties and fry without moving until well browned, 2-3’, turn the patties and continue frying for another minute or two until you get a nice brown colour all over. With a slotted spoon take off from the pan and place in a flat dish that kitchen paper has been placed on to absorb the excess oil. Repeat for the remaining falafel patties.
  • Warm up your pitta breads and cut in half and serve with the tahini sauce.
