15 minutes 

 

Cooking time

15 minutes (plus 2.5 hours if you're making your own pita bread)


Serves

4

 

Ingredients 

 

For the wraps (to save time, buy ready made)

1/2 cup warm water (not hot or boiling)

1 tsp active dry or instant yeast

1 1/4 cups flour (plus a little extra for sprinkling on your bench)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp olive oil (plus a little extra for lining your bowl)

 

For the filling

800g can chickpeas, rinsed, drained and patted dry

2 onions, chopped

1 bunch of parsley, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp chilli powder

4 tbsp plain flour

4 tsp olive oil (plus a little extra for frying)

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 lettuce, chopped, to add some greens to your wrap

 

For the dressing

1/2 cup tahini

3/4 cups water (as needed)

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tbsp olive oil 

The juice of 1 lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Method

  • If you're making your own pitas, mix the water and yeast together and let it sit for five minutes. Then add the remaining pita ingredients and mix until 'shaggy'.
  • Line a bowl with clingwrap, grease it with a little olive oil and pop yor dough in it. Cover with a cloth or more clingwrap and put it in the fridge to rest until it has doubled in size (for 1-2 hours).
  • When the dough has risen, gently deflate it and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces and gently flatten each piece into a thick disk. Sprinkle with a little more flour and then cover with a kitchen towel or clingwrap until you're ready to bake them. 
  • Using a floured rolling pin, on a lightly floured work surface, roll each piece into a circle 8-9 inches wide and about a quarter inch thick. 
  • Cover a frying pan in a thin layer of oil and fry each disk for 30 seconds, until you see bubbles starting to form. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side, then flip again and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Keep cooked pitas covered with a clean tea towel while cooking remaining pitas. Set aside.
  • Mix your falafel ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Then shape your mixture into patties. Add a little more oil to your pan and cook each falafel patty for three minutes on each side.
  • Now it's time to assemble your wraps! Put a couple of patties in each wrap with a little chopped lettuce.
  • Drizzle with your dressing and serve!
