Generally falafels are prepared using chickpeas but we have replaced chickpeas with kidney beans. Traditionally this is Middle Eastern dish in which egg is also added, as I am a vegan so have omitted egg as well. Still the taste has come out very crisp and nice.

Step 1: Recipe


Soaked Kidney beans – 1 cup

Boiled potatoes – 3-4 medium size pcs

Bread slices – 2 pcs

Bread crumbs – ½ cup

Salt, Ajwain, Red chili powder and Chaat masala – ½ tsp each

Maida (Refined flour) – 1 tbsp

Oil for deep frying


1. Finely chop or grind kidney beans and bread slices. In this mixture add boiled and mashed potatoes and all spices. Make a nice mixture for falafels and divide the material into small parts. Give the desired shape to each falafel and keep aside.

2. Make a thin batter if refined flour and water. Dip each falafel in this batter and coat with bread crumbs. Deep fry the falafel till they are golden brown in colour. Fry on medium flame only else the center will remain raw from inside.

3. Serve hot with mayo, sauce or chutney of choice.
