    Directions

    1. Place the drained chickpeas and 3 tbsp of the reserved liquid in a food processor; process until almost smooth. Add the onions, cilantro, parsley, garlic, egg, ground coriander, ground cumin, cayenne pepper and baking powder; process until combined. Add breadcrumbs; season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix well.
    2. Divide mixture into 18 pieces; roll into balls. Flatten into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Set aside for 15 mins to firm.
    3. Half-fill a deep skillet with oil. Heat on medium heat (oil is ready when a cube of bread browns in 1 min). Deep-fry falafel, in batches, for 6-7 mins until well browned. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Keep warm.
    4. Fill pita with falafel and salad. Serve with tahini sauce and lemon wedges.
