First you need to soak the dry chickpeas in water for 15 - 20 hours. DO NOT USE chickpeas from a can! There is no need to boil them.
Place the coriander, onion, garlic and the parsley in the food processor and chop it. You can use a meat grinder.
Add the chickpeas, cumin, paprika, baking soda, bread crumbs, salt and pepper (by taste) and chop until you get a nice mixture. The mix should be a bit dry so DO NOT add water!
After heating the oil up to 180C you can start frying the Falafels. You can use 2 spoons to make the round shape. Fry it until its nicely brown and crispy.
Done! Bon appetite... (Tip: Put it in a pita bread and add some tachina).
