Home made falafel

Falafel are easy and delishes made fresh. I like to add peas, my little ones favorite vegetable plus they are full of vitamin C and iron. Vitamin C helps you absorb the iron, making it a great combination.

1/2 a large onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups of chickpeas drained
1 cup of peas (I use frozen and remove as much liquid as possible)
1 dessert spoon of tumeric
1 dessert spoon of cumin
Olive oil for sauteing

Chop garlic and onion saute for 3 minutes with spices. Add chickpeas and peas and cook to remove any excess moisture. Process into paste. Heat frying pan with some oil. Fry spoonfulls until golden then flip and repeat. Serve with yoghurt or a spicy tomato sauce.
