Homemade Dried Falafel Mix

I love snacking on falafel balls but they are usually such a process to prepare and I never get around to making them. With this easy homemade dried falafel mix, all you have to do is mix together a few ingredients and it's time to nosh! This mix is also great on chicken and fish.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Ready Time : 5 min


2-4 People


  • 5 cups garbanzo bean flour aka chickpea flour, can be found in most health food stores and the health food aisle of your local grocery store
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


1. Blend all ingredients together.

2. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

*to make falafel, combine 1 cup homemade dried falafel mix with 1/2 cup hot water and 2 tsp lemon juice. Set aside for 15 minutes to thicken. Pan-fry spoonfuls of the mixture in hot vegetable oil for 2 minutes on each side.

    Where on earth can I find garbanzo bean flour?

    • Check the health food aisle of your local grocery store. I’ve seen it in pretty much every grocery store I’ve been to so hopefully you should be able to find it easily.

  2. Garbanzo Bean Flour – Bob’s Red Mill produces it.

    This is also a great gluten-free substitute for breading chicken and fish.

    • I have used the breading mixture on chicken and fish and it is delicious. Have not tried the falafel yet as I used to make with raw chickpeas.
