Recipe for Tabouli and Falafel

Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for either of these. and can you bake the Falafel instead of frying it

serves 6-8

450g chick peas, soaked overnight in water (or use a drain can of chickepeas)
½ onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 cup coarsely chopped parsley
2 teaspoons salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground cumin
vegetable oil for frying


Drain chickpeas and rinse thoroughly.
Place all ingredients except oil in food processor and process until roughly chopped. The mixture should be able to be molded into balls.
Form mixture into walnut sized balls and gently flatten in your hand.
Heat about 2cm of oil and shallow fry until crisp and golden on each side.
Drain on kitchen paper.
Serve hot.

Alison and Simon Holst have recipes for both and they are yum.

I use Rose Elliot's falafel recipe which uses soaked but not cooked chickpeas which I have found to be the best recipe. I will put it on the vegetarian thread later if I have time.
