Ta'ameya (Egyptian Falafel) Recipe
In this recipe for the Egyptian street food ta'ameya, ground fava beans and herbs are rolled in sesame seeds and fried into crisp falafel.
Wonderful, authentic recipe!
Tasted great, but I had an issue with consistency. I wound up baking these instead of frying them as they sort of melted in the pan. Sadly, baking dried the recipe out a bit, so I would need to think of new ways to make this recipe work.
second time making this recipe. I didnt have any fresh herbs so I used dried. we added baking powder to the dough. when we form them into patties we put a tiny bit of water on the outside while forming them, add the sesame seeds then deep fry them. no issues of falling apart. I even brushed a couple with a small amount of olive oil and baked them, they turned out wonderful. reminds my Egyptian husband of home. thank you for this recipe!
