  • 2 400g Canned Chickpeas drained weight 240g
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Small Bunch Fresh Parsley
  • Small Bunch Fresh Coriander
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 0.5 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 0.5 tsp Black Pepper
  • 0.25 tsp Allspice
  • 0.25 tsp Chilli Powder
  • Pinch Salt
  • 10 Large Tortilla Wraps
  • 1 Egg Beaten


  • Drain and rinse 1 can of chickpeas and place in a blender.
  • Add the onion, garlic, ground herbs and spices and blend until smooth.
  • Chop the fresh herbs and add with the other can (drained and rinsed) of chickpeas and pulse until chopped but is still lumpy.
  • Prepare your tortillas by cutting the edges off the left and right side of the circle.
  • Cut the middle part into 3.
  • Take each piece and fold the left side down towards you, making a triangle and creating a straight vertical line from the top to the bottom of the piece.
  • Fold again up away from you to make another triangle so that the edges of the top and the triangle line up. This makes a cone. Unfold it slightly after you have the shape to brush the egg on and stick it together.
  • Fill the cone with the falafel filling, Brush the tortilla to the right of the cone with egg and fold the cone over to seal the filling in.
  • Brush the rest of the tortilla to the right and fold around to the back of the triangle. You will see a gap where the pieces of the tortilla have been folded. Tuck the flap into this part.
  • Heat your oil to deep fry and once its ready, fry the samosas in batches.
  • Fry for about 2 minutes until the samosas are golden and firm when you tap them.
  • Remove from the oil and drain. Pat away the excess oil and serve.
