Falafel in Air Fryer

Falafel in Air Fryer

  • Author: Bobby


  • One can chickpeas (240 g)
  • 1 cup frozen/fresh green peas
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • olive oil to spray
  • All-purpose flour to dust
  • Salt as per taste


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and dry well using a kitchen cloth.
  2. Rinse the frozen peas with warm water until defrosted. Then using your hands, squeeze as much liquid out of the peas as possible.
  3. Add all the ingredients blend on high until smooth.
  4. Using your hands, create small little patties out of the falafels. It may help to coat your hands with a bit of flour to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands. A slightly moist mixture makes for better falafels as baking them dries them out a fair bit.
  5. If you find the mixture is too wet and the patties do not hold their shape, add 1 Tbsp of flour or breadcrumbs, and let it sit for a few minutes to absorb the liquid.
  6. Once the patties are formed, dust both sides with flour, and spray a generous amount of oil on both sides of the patty.
  7. Spray the basket for your air fryer with some olive oil and cook them in the air fryer at 180 degrees for 18 min.
  8. Serve with hummus and tzatziki in a wrap, or on nourish bowls, or on salads.
