  • In a food processor, blend chickpeas, onion, and garlic until coarsely chopped. Small chunks are coarse and fine and give falafel texture to the batter. Further add coriander, cumin powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, parsley, baking soda, flour, salt, and pepper. Pulse the batter until it resembles a coarsely fine falafel texture. Now transfer this mixture to a bowl and stir with a fork. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Until the batter is set up, it’s time to make your favorite tahini syrup. Spill all the syrup ingredients in a food processor and blend to a smooth, creamy texture. Make sure it is relatively. Set it aside as well.
  • So we have prepared our batter and tahini syrup… Hmmm! What is next?
    Of course, it’s time to bake these delicious waffles.
  • For this, preheat your Belgian waffle iron. If you don’t have one, get the best waffle maker from here. Spray with cooking spray. Pour the batter on the waffle iron until about 2/3 full. Close the cover and cook for at least 12-15 minutes or till the waffle get your desired crispiness and browning.
  • For an added flavor, toss some tomato and cucumber in lemon juice and olive oil.
  • When waffles are perfectly cooked, carefully remove them from iron and top with your favorite Tahini syrup and a generous pile of veggies you prepared. Serve warm.
