• 1 cup dried shelled fava beans, soaked overnight and drained
• 1/2 cup peeled and finely chopped yellow onions
• 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
• 1 cup water
• 1/2 cup sesame seeds
• 1/2 cup garbanzo flour
• 1/4 cup fine bulgar
• 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
• 1/4 Tbs. salt

• 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Preparation

• Run the drained garbanzo beans and fava beans through the fine blade on your meat grinder or in your food processor.
• Blend in all the remaining ingredients and let the mixture stand for 1 hour.
• Form into little patties 1/3 inch thick and 1-1/2 inches round. Or, you can form them into balls the size of walnuts.
• Deep-fry in 375 degree oil until toasty brown and crunchy on the outside, about 4 minutes.
• Fill pita bread with falafel, sliced tomatoes, sliced onion, lettuce, yogurt, hummus, etc.
Additional Notes
Its a good idea to have multiple pans going at one time to make the cook ... otherwise the 2 hours could turn into a half a day. :)
