4) Remove in a bowl and add flour, cumin pdr, coriander pdr, red chilli pdr, lemon juice and salt to taste.
5) Mix well with your hands and refrigerate for 1hour.
6) Make burger size patties of the chickpea mixture.

8) Assemble all the other ingredients on the burger as you usually do when making regular burgers.

1) We can deep fry the Falafel, and when doing so, if you find your falafel is falling apart, by all means, use more flour, but add a little at a time.
2) An egg is also an acceptable binding agent but only use 1 egg.
