Falafel is one good and nutritious food anyone will relish.
I have posted recipes of falafel before..and in addition to that I’m sharing this recipe with
prawn ‘n ‘spinach.
The authentic falafel is made with coriander leaves ,but this one is made with the iron
rich spinach leaves.
Spinach leaves have amazing health benefits,and it is beneficial, if you can include it in
your diet daily in the form of salad and juices.
When cooked with dals,paneer or any meat it brings out an unique flavor and taste .
There are 3 types of spinach you could pick on in Asia
1. Baby spinach
2.Chinese spinach ( red)
You could use any of the variety for this falafel.
So let’s move on to the recipe.
200-250 gm prawns ( shells removed)
2 cups channa ( kadala) soaked overnight(brown or white)
1 cup spinach leaves
3-5 green chillies or red chillies
4 pips garlic
1 tsp cummin seeds
Salt to taste.
1/2 tsp pepper.
1 onion chopped fine ( optional)
Oil for frying
Grind all the listed ingredients, except onions to a coarse paste and fry to a golden color.
You could shallow fry or deep fry.
Serve hot with any dips of your choice.
Tip : A cube of your favourite cheese can be used in the centre before frying.
Prawns could be ground with tails on for that extra crunch.
