I always make them differently, but what you basically need are chickpeas, onion,1 garlic clove, ground cumin and coriander (seed), parsley and salt and dried chili flakes to taste. 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.

I dunno. I got nothing planned. Maybe a sixer of PBR, a maple ham steak, some pasta and some steamed broccoli.

What are those?

(I was actually going to make some crack that would have been mildly humorous and horribly racist, but I don't want to be labled an Archie Bunker so I'll just ask what they are)

It's just an old joke.

80/20 meat/fat ratio for the beef, shaped to the bun and grilled. I usually throw some eggplant and zucchini with garlic and red chili flakes in the oven (or grill) to roast and then serve them under the burger. Use field greens instead of lettuce, and slice your onion thick and grill it with the burger.

Ah okay.

Tonight I am making the shrimp/angel hair pasta meal. Also going to make brownies later so that they are still warm when we put the vanilla ice cream over them.
