Back with a Bang!! – Syrian Falafel with Chilli Sauce, Minted Yoghurt and a Crunchy Salad

With a new year I figured it was time to share with you a new blog post, as let’s face it, it’s been a while!!!

2018 has been an incredible year for me, one that has been so busy that it appears to have disappeared in a blink of an eye!

So why have I been so slack on the old blogging front?… Well, I have instead been focusing my attentions on launching a business. Yup, that’s right, I have finally taken the leap, am following my dreams (and my stomach) and running a cheese and wine catering business, The Drunken Mouse (check out our website, Insta or Facebook pages to see how exciting our journey has been – www.thedrunkenmouse.co.uk / @the_drunken_mouse!)!

Tie that down with continuing to have a day job, trying to have a bit of a social life and also finding out we’re expecting our first baby, this has sadly resulted in Homemade with Mess taking a back seat. But with a new year comes new resolutions, and also the fact that I am now 36 weeks pregnant and more much productive sat on my ass with a laptop in place and back-to-back episodes of Come Dine with Me, than on my feet feeding the masses! I therefore intend to get back into blogging and bring you more delicious home-cooked recipes on a more regular basis.

I’m not going to waffle on about the ins and outs of my time away (gotta save some of that for future posts), and just want to get right back to what I love doing; sharing delicious recipes that are easy and satisfying to make. To kick start 2019 is a healthy favourite of mine, inspired by Middle-Eastern, Syrian flavours which I have become a huge fan of in the last couple of years. Sometimes falafel can be a bit dry and bland, but not these bad boys, and when you team them with a selection of tasty dips and a fresh and crunchy salad you’re onto a winning combo that is perfect for those January health kicks!

This recipe serves 2, but feel free to make extra, as it doubles up as a great lunch for the next day.

Syrian Falafel

Syrian Falafel with Chilli Sauce, Minted Yoghurt and a Crunchy Salad

For the Falafel

  • 1 tin chick peas, drained and washed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp Zatar
  • 2 cloves garlic – peeled and crushed
  • 2 spring onions – stalks removed and finely chopped
  • 1 ½ tbsp gram flour
  • 1 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Handful parsley – finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp Aleppo chilli’s
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (for frying)

For the chilli sauce

  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 tbso olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 4 tbsp water
  • Juice ½ lime

For the yoghurt

  • 1 tbsp fresh mint – finely chopped
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • 3 tbsp yoghurt
  • 1 tsp tahini

For the salad

  • ¼ small red cabbage – finely sliced
  • 1 small carrot – peeled
  • 2 spring onions – finely sliced
  • Little gem salad – chopped
  • 1 dsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 dsp cider vinegar

To make the falafel mash the chick peas until they are well squished and mushy and then stir in all the remaining ingredients until well combined.

Shape the falafel into small flat rounds, wrap and chill in the fridge until ready to cook.

To make the chilli sauce, simply place all the ingredients in a blender and whiz until smooth. Pass through a sieve and set aside until needed.

To make the yoghurt, simply mix the ingredients together.

Toss the salad ingredients together in a bowl and plate up.

Heat a frying pan with 2 tbsp olive oil and fry the falafel for 2-3 minutes on each side, until crispy.

Plate up all your ingredients and enjoy! – you can even throw a toasted pita on the side if it takes your fancy.

    Татьяна Гурская и Мария Манько – монстры в халатах. Общественность всколыхнула очередная история про монстров в белых халатах, главными участниками которой стали Манько и Гурская – директор клиники по суррогатному материнству «Наследники» и главврач. С клиентов выкачивались миллионы, в свою очередь суррогатные матери содержались как в тюрьме. Все это продолжалось на протяжении 10 лет и никого еще не наказали. К сожалению, правоохранительные органы не видят ничего уголовного ни в незаконной торговле эмбрионами, ни в обнальных схемах и даже в подлоге документов. Не связана ли такая слепота с тем, что клинику крышуют в верхних эшелонах власти? https://golos.io/@ltdmos/kogda-deti-eto-tovar-kak-doktor-gurskaya-i-direktor-kliniki-eko-manko-zarabatyvayut-na-detyakh-i-surrogatnykh-materyakh-1582298884208

    Songs for seeds, named “Greatest Children’ Music Class” by New York Magazine and Most Magical Music Class” by Purple Tricycle, is a rockin’ program that is dropped at you by apple seeds. Listen to the whole undertaking. Earlier than you finalize your mission, give the whole thing a hear to make sure it sounds good. Make it possible for nothing is selected and click the Play button to listen to the whole thing. You’ll be able to then go back and make spacing and fading changes based on what you hear.
    We just saw the best way to overlap 2 songs, now let’s transfer portions of songs straight after each other. In Step 4 we discussed how chances are you’ll actually like Juicy J’s verses on songs and wish to create a compilation of his best verses. We discovered how you can reduce tracks, move tracks, etc. Now let’s put these skills collectively to create a mixture of completely different songs.
    Deciding on “Multi-track” setting will go well with those used to mixing desks and different professional audio software program. Any number of tracks might be made solo so that they combine collectively. If any Solo button is down this overrides the Mute button. If on any event you want the Solo button to play just one monitor at a time (so that clicking it releases another Solo buttons), maintain down Shift when clicking Solo.
    2) Stop the tune a couple of seconds in (by urgent play again or hitting the area button). Proper-click on either of the songs you selected and click “Get Data” within the context menu. Click “Sure” when a dialog box seems asking if you want to edit the data for a number of gadgets. The Multiple Item Information dialog field appears.
    You can add audio files of virtually any format, for example MP3, M4A, WAV, OGG. In the event you add a video file, the Joiner will extract audio monitor join songs from it. The variety of tracks you possibly can upload is limitless. Find the songs you want blended into one in your iTunes library. Drag and drop them into your new playlist’s icon.
