Basically, you have to brown the onion and garlic, and once soft put it in a mixing bowl with the chickpeas, spices and parsley and mash them all together. Next you add egg to bind them and knead the mixture together. Mold them into balls and fry.
As I say, you can adjust this to taste. Turmeric is good to add as well, as are crushed mustard seeds (for instance).
Awesome! Thanks. I like felafel. It's the only way I'll ever eat chick peas. We buy them from costco but if we can make them it would be easier and cheaper. My mom eats lots of chick peas.
It's similar to vadai, which is a Sri Lankan short eat.
