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.
