Falafel wrap with yoghurt & lemon dip

image6

Falafel is made with chickpeas and spices, rolled into balls and deep fried. Instead of frying them I’ve opted to bake them in the oven and wrap them in a wholemeal wrap. A really delicious meal for anyone craving some indian food but simply don’t want all the calories. They can eaten on there own, as part of a salad, as a snack or rolled into bigger portions to make burgers. Perfect with some homemade yoghurt & lemon dip. Would be equally scrumptious with couscous or homemade chunky salsa.

Heres what you’ll need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g chickpeas
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  •  1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oats

 

How to make falafel balls:

Fry the onion in 1 tbsp oil until soft

Preheat the oven to 200 deg c

Place falafels onto a lightly greased baking tray and place in the fridge for 20 minutes

Drizzle with the remaining oil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown, turning each one over half way through.
