Description

Tameya is the Egyptian Coptic name for falafel and is typically made with fava beans. This recipe draws inspiration from an Israeli variant of the Egyptian Tameya, adding mint to the mixture. This recipe uses peas and chickpeas as the basis of the falafel mixture. Seasoned with Za'atar, a traditional Middle Eastern spice blend, cumin, chilli pepper, and mint, these falafel balls are then fried until golden and crispy. Serve with greek yogurt and your favorite variety of flatbread.

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
