Falafel with Tahini 

Best tahini dressing recipe

There is not one “right” approach for making falafel. Accordingly, add less onion if that’s how you prefer it. Add extra herbs if that is what you like. Add even more spice to everything. Really, it’s up to you. But the one thing constant is the best tahini dressing by Teta Foods.

But What is Falafel & Where Does it Come From?

Probably the first dish that springs to mind when thinking of Mediterranean cuisine is falafel. Fava beans, ground chickpeas, or a combination of the two, are used to make falafel, which is usually served as deep-fried patties or balls. While some people enjoy their falafel on its own as a satisfying snack, others like it with salad, pita, and healthy tahini sauce.

Special insider secrets: 

Compared to the traditional recipe, Teta Foods’ Tahini Dressing & Dip is simpler & more adaptable. It can be used in salads and falafel as an unexpected and pleasant condiment.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Dried chickpeas, soaked overnight (yields two cups) – 1 cup
  • Red onion – ½, chopped 
  • Garlic cloves – 5, chopped
  • Parsley (half bunch) – ¾ cup, chopped
  • Cilantro (half bunch) – ¾ cup, chopped
  • Teta Foods Tahini Dressing & Dip – add as per preference
  • Baking soda – ⅛  tsp
  • Spice mix – 1 ½  tbsp
  • Vegetable oil – 6 cups (fill the pot ¾ full) 


  • Add the chickpeas, chopped garlic and onion, parsley, cilantro, baking soda, spice blend, and salt to a food processor. 
  • Pulse until the mixture is combined and the chickpeas are pea-size, stopping and stirring halfway through. Form the falafel mixture into balls about the size of a large marble, firmly packed, and put aside.
  • Fry the falafel: Fill a deep pan halfway with oil, then place it over medium heat.
  • Make sure the saucepan isn’t packed, too full of falafel before dropping the falafel balls into the boiling oil one at a time.
  • Cook for one to two minutes, or until the falafel is golden brown and most of the bubbles have vanished.
  • To serve, arrange the falafel balls onto a serving dish, pour some Teta Foods Tahini Dressing over them, and top with a lemon wedge and parsley.
