  • Mash the chickpeas with a potato masher in a large bowl. Once they are all mashed well add the baking powder, onion, garlic, cumin, coriander, cayenne, parsley, cilantro, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and mix well.
  • Form the Mixture into patties, I make small, round patties that I can fit into pita bread.
  • Heat enough vegetable oil in a pan so that the falafel has enough room to float over medium high heat.
  • Cook the falafel in oil just until they are golden brown and pull them out and drain them on paper towels.
  • Serve as desired.
