How it's done


Blitz the chickpeas, wild garlic, shallot and lemon zest in a food processor. Add the flour, baking powder, sesame, vanilla paste and salt and knead well by hand until the ingredients have combined to form a compact mass. With wet hands, shape the mixture into around 20 walnut-sized balls.


Mix together the yoghurt and tahini, stir in the reserved lemon juice, season.

To serve

Fry the pita breads in a non-stick frying pan (without adding any oil) for approx. 2 mins. on each side, cut open. Spoon the sauce, cucumber and falafel into the breads, garnish with wild garlic. Serve with the lemon wedges.

To deep-fry

Fill a pot to ⅓ with oil and heat it to approx. 180°C. Place the balls in the oil in batches using a slotted spoon, fry for approx. 3 mins. Remove and drain on paper towels.
