Falafel is the Middle Eastern fast food.  It can be served as a sandwich in pita bread,  with tahini, 
tomatoes and lettuce.  It can be served in a salad with hummus.  In most of the Middle East it is eaten
just as a very tasty fried ball of mashed garabanzos or chick peas.  In Cairo at the local McDonalds the
serve a McFalafel.

	1 large onion, chopped
	2 cloves of garlic, chopped
	3 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
	1 teaspoon coriander
	1 teaspoon cumin
	1/2 teaspoon baking powder
	Salt & Pepper to taste

Place dried chickpeas in a bowl, covering with cold water. Allow to soak overnight. Omit this step if
using canned beans.

Drain chickpeas, and place in pan with fresh water, and bring to a boil.
