Funny Jewish Flash Falafel Game
Be an Isreal Ars and Serve Fresh falafel jewish game
Finely cut and fry an onion and clove of garlic. Mix with a well-drained can of chickpeas, a few teaspoons of curry powder and a sprinkling of flour. The mixture should be quite dry. Blend with a blender until reasonably smooth, but leave a few lumps for texture. On a floured board, roll lumps of mixture into balls around the size of a ping-pong ball, coating completely in flour. Shallow fry the balls until they are brown. Serve in a warm pitta bread with salad (surówka works well) and a drizzle of plain yoghurt.
