Falafel Cooking Instructions


How to cook frozen Falafel (Fry)




Frying frozen falafel is an easy process. Here's how to do it:

  1. Preheat a deep fryer or a pot of oil to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Take the frozen falafel out of the freezer and let it thaw at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.

  3. Once the falafel has thawed, gently drop a few pieces at a time into the hot oil.

  4. Fry the falafel for 3-5 minutes, or until it is golden brown and crispy on the outside.

  5. Remove the falafel from the oil using a slotted spoon and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to remove any excess oil.

  6. Repeat the process with the remaining falafel pieces.

  7. Serve the hot and crispy falafel with pita bread, hummus, tahini sauce, and your favorite toppings.

Note: Make sure not to overcrowd the pot or deep fryer, as this will lower the temperature of the oil and result in soggy falafel. Additionally, if you don't have a deep fryer, you can use a pot of oil with at least 2 inches of oil in it, and use a thermometer to monitor the temperature.



How to cook frozen Falafel (Air Fryer)





If you prefer to use an air fryer to cook your frozen falafel, here's how to do it:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for 3-5 minutes.

  2. Take the frozen falafel out of the freezer and let it thaw at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.

  3. Place the thawed falafel in the air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving some space between each piece.

  4. Spray or brush a little bit of oil over the falafel to help them get crispy. You can use cooking spray or a pastry brush with a small amount of oil.

  5. Cook the falafel for 10-12 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time.

  6. Once the falafel is cooked, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes.

  7. Serve the hot and crispy falafel with pita bread, hummus, tahini sauce, and your favorite toppings.



Note: Air fryer cooking times may vary depending on the brand and model of your air fryer, so be sure to check the manufacturer's instructions for specific cooking times and temperatures. Additionally, make sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket, as this will prevent the falafel from getting crispy. You may need to cook the falafel in batches if your air fryer basket is small.
