Falafel is usually made of kabuli chana and deep-fried, but here we have made it with moong dal and cooked it in an appe mould to avoid deep-frying. You also get a good dose of healthy kabuli chana from the hummus!
The third part of this wonderful dish is the whole wheat pita bread. This is available in stores, but you can never be sure if it is made of whole wheat flour, so let’s make that ourselves – this simple recipe will help you master the art of making whole wheat pita bread too.
Once you get all the ingredients ready, it is time to assemble them together into sumptuous Falafel in Whole Wheat Pita Pockets, which you can enjoy occasionally to satisfy the craving for your favourite snacks.
