Another simple recipe for weight loss ....
The word Falafel means fritters itself or sandwich filled with it.
Falafel is common not only in Middle East,but also in Greece,Iraq,Egypt,Sudan,Yemen etc.
You can make it very easily and can serve with Pita bread and Hummus, along with any vegetables.
This snack is made with Chick peas, so it’s really low in fat and high in Protein and fiber.
Chick pea contains no Cholesterol.
Key nutrients are Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Vitamin C, Thiamine, Pantothenic acid, Vitamin B and Folate.
Falafel is often recommended for use in weight control programs.
