Falafel is traditionally served in Egyptian breakfast along with ful, eggs, cheese, and pita bread.
Traditional falafel is made with chickpeas, but Egyptian Tamiya is made of fava beans.
Fava beans should be soaked overnight to soften, then crushed in a food processor.
They are then mixed with a fresh combination of chopped cilantro, parsley, white onion, garlic, and leek, giving Tamiya its vibrant green color.
Spices such as cumin, coriander, paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper are added along with chickpea flour. Rolled into balls, and fried!
It’s not a surprise why Ta’meya is such a popular Egyptian food – it’s packed with loads of unique, fresh flavor.
