  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 6 patties 1x



For the Falafel Patties

  • 1 1/2 cups dried chickpeas, soaked in cold water overnight with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves (67 sprigs), coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley (67 sprigs), coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves (45 sprigs), coarsely chopped
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 green chillies (optional)

For the Israeli Salad

  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, finely chopped
  • 3 sprigs parsley, finely chopped
  • Juice of a lime
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt

Other Ingredients for Burger Assembly

  • 6 Burger Buns, (optional – toast the buns with butter)
  • 1/3 cup Store bought Mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup Homemade Hummus / Store bought is fine


For the Falafel Patties

  1. Dump the chickpeas in a large bowl and add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Add water till it fills the bowl and let it sit at room temperature overnight for 8-10 hours. The next day, drain.
  2. Chop the greens ( I use coriander leaves, mint leaves and parsley) roughly. Set aside. Add in the rest of the ingredients along with the greens. Basically dump all the ingredients in your mixer. Work in batches if necessary. You need to grind the mixture to a slightly coarse paste. Do not add any water while grinding. For every pulse in your mixer, open the jar and slightly mix everything so the mixture gets ground evenly. Resist your urge to add water. Once you feel that the mixture has become a coarse paste, Set aside. The coarse texture is important for this recipe.
  3. Make a 3-4 inch patties out of the mixture and place it in the air fryer. Set the timer for 15 minutes and fry the patties at 200 degrees Celsius temperature. Fry in batches. Do not over crowd the air fryer. Set aside. Your Zero Oil Patties are ready.

For the Israeli Salad

  1. Mix all the finely chopped ingredients listed under Israeli salad and set aside.
