Ingredients:1 15-oz can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
1 onion, chopped
1/2 c fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 egg
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp salt
1 dash pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 c dry bread crumbs
oil for frying
Preparation:In a large bowl mash chickpeas until thick and pasty; don't use a blender, as the consistency will be too thin. In a blender, process onion, parsley and garlic until smooth. Stir into mashed chickpeas.

In a small bowl combine egg, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, cayenne, lemon juice and baking powder. Stir into chickpea mixture along with olive oil. Slowly add bread crumbs until mixture is not sticky but will hold together; add more or less bread crumbs, as needed. Form 8 balls and then flatten into patties.

Heat 1" of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties in hot oil until brown on both sides.

Serve with Sean's Cucumber Sauce
Notes:Makes 4 servings.

When I want a new recipe, I start at allrecipies.com. They have ratings
from those who have tried it. Since I know a little bit about cooking
I can see by the recipe if it's going to be good or not. We found our
chicken curry recipe there, although it doesn't look like the recipe
we pulled from the site anymore.

Doing a quick search on falafel, there's a 5 star recipe with 47 reviews
