A typical Maharashtrian snack, Misal Pav. Both filling and tasty too! more



Falafels, traditionally a Middle Eastern delicacy and liked by all at home. I thought why not try making them with an Indian flavour. To improve the nutritive value added spinach too.

This is what you’ll need

Chickpeas: 2 cups (cooked) (I used 1 tin)

Spinach: 1 cup (chopped)

Onion: 1 cup (chopped)

Bread crumbs: 1 1/2 cup

Green chillies: 4

Ginger: 1/2″ piece

Garam masala: 1/2tsp

Chaat masala: 1tsp

Coriander leaves: 2tsp

Salt to taste

Oil to shallow fry.

Let’s get cooking

1. Coarsely grind the chickpeas, green chillies and ginger, using very little water.

2. Take out this paste into a bowl.

3. Add the chopped onions, spinach, 1 cup bread crumbs, garam masala, chaat masala, coriander leaves and salt.

4. Make small balls, flatten into rounds, coat with the remaining bread crumbs and shallow fry. Drain onto a kitchen towel.

5. Serve hot with ketchup or a chutney of your choice

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4
