Lebanese Platter – FALAFEL

Lebanese is an upcoming cuisine these days which is being shown a lot of love by vegetarians to have something DIFFERENT than the others. A Lebanese Vegetarian platter consists of a pizza base like bread, a chickpea dip, Falafel –  a tikky, a curd dip and a salad as the main parts.

Thus, been inspired by the upcoming fashion and love for this cuisine I tried my hands on it as a whole Sunday brunch. I was really happy to find my family liking it and thus sharing the same with all of you as well.



  • 200 gms Chickpeas, soaked overnight
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 15gm fresh parsely
  • 1tsp Garlic paste
  • ½ tsp Corainder powder
  • ½ tsp Jeera Powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Flour
  • Vegetable oil



  1. Combine all the ingredients except the flour and oil with the help of a good food blender. Blend the mixture well until it’s coarsely pureed.
  2. Place this mixture in a mixing bowl and add flour, stirring it continuously to combine thoroughly.
  3. Form into patties with wet hands using water and pan fry them on a non-stick tawa.
  4. Serve with pita bread and hummus.


Happy Cooking!
