Instructions

Making Falafel

  • Soak chickpeas in water for at least 7-8 hours or overnight. In the morning strain the chickpeas and discard all the extra water.
  • Put all the ingredients except oil in a grinder and make a coarse paste. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  • Heat oil in a wok. Take a little portion of the paste in your hands and make small lime size balls by rolling between your palms. Deep fry the balls until they turn golden brown from all the sides. Take out on a kitchen paper towel. Keep aside

Making Tabbouleh

  • Put bulgar wheat in a bowl and add boiling water. Cover the bowl with a lid for 10-15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, remove the lid, fluff the bulgar wheat with a fork and add all the remaining ingredients. Toss well.

Assembling the wrap

  • Take a flatbread and spread some chopped cabbage, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, and carrots. Sprinkle some salt and pepper.
  • Put a few falafels on top.
  • Top it with some hummus.
  • Finally cover with loads of tabbouleh and roll the bread. Enjoy with your favorite Middle Eastern dip.

Notes

  1. Instead of Tabbouleh, you can use any other salad of your choice.
  2. Both homemade and store-bought hummus can be used. You can also use a different variety of hummus like beetroot hummus.
  3. If you don't like hummus, feel free to use any other dip or spread like muhammara.
  4. Skip or add any vegetables of your choice like beetroot, bell peppers, etc.
