  • Blend chickpeas, cilantro, parsley, onion, and garlic in a food processor until a rough paste forms. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add chickpea flour, coriander, cumin, sriracha, salt, and pepper and mix well. Cover bowl and let mixture rest for 1 hour.

  • Preheat an air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Add baking powder and baking soda to the chickpea mixture. Mix using your hands until just combined. Form 15 equal-sized balls and press slightly to form patties. Spray falafel patties with cooking spray.

  • Place 7 falafel patties in the preheated air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Transfer cooked falafel to a plate and repeat with remaining 8 falafel, cooking for 10 to 12 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to try harissa sauce in place of the sriracha.

Great taste. I used chili flakes instead of sriracha to reduce amount of liquids. Maybe bread crumbs instead of flour would help. They stuck a bit through the grate in air fryer so I recommend parchment paper at bottom. Read More
