Cheese Centered Falafel


The origin of this dish is Egypt.This is a chick peas based patty,which can be eaten plain or with sauces, or wrapped in pita bread or any wrap of your choice with some pickled vegetables and sauces (tahini preferably) will be an excellent meal.Let’s look into my version of Falafel with some variations

2 green chillies
3 pips garlic
1 inch piece ginger
1/2 cup coriander leaves
3/4 tsp.pepper

1/2 tsp.garam masala powder
Mozzarella cheese cubes
Salt to taste
Sesame seeds for light coating
Oil for frying.

Method

Now make desired sized balls,or if you know the spoon technique, of Falafel.Place a piece of cheese in each.Roll on sesame seeds(optional) and deep fry to a golden color.Serve hot with sauces of your choice.
Tips:
You could substitute cheese with pickled vegetables like olives,capers,zucchini, gherkins,cherry tomatoes.
Non vegetarian :cheese tossed prawn will be excellent.
