Falafel burgers


  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the onion until tender, stirring now and again. 
  • Add the ground cumin and coriander. Stir well and briefly cook to toast the spices. 
  • Then whiz up the chickpeas with the grated rind and juice of 1-1½ lemons, the parsley, 6 tbsp flour, the sautéed onions, salt and pepper in a food processor. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and taste for seasoning. 
  • Combine the red onion with the juice of ½ lemon and set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix the yoghurt with the fresh coriander, a squeeze of lemon juice and the harissa until well combined. 
  • Carefully form the chickpea mixture into burgers. Then lightly flour and panfry in a thin layer of hot oil in batches until golden brown on both sides. 
  • Heat the buns on a lightly oiled ridged grill. 
  • To serve, layer the burger bases with tomato, red onion, a falafel burger and a good dollop of the yoghurt. Cover with the bun tops and lightly press down.
