  1. Put the chickpeas and fava beans in a large bowl and add almost 4 cups water to cover them. Let soak them overnight and then drain.
  2. Place the drained chickpeas, fava beans and onions in a food processor fitted with a steel blade and add all the remaining ingredients except flour and baking soda, and then blended until chickpeas and beans are ground and mixed with other ingredients properly.
  3. Turn into a bowl and sprinkle flour and baking soda in the mixture. Add some water if needed and make a mixture that no longer sticks to your hands and easily forms small balls. Cover it and refrigerate it for almost 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. And then make small balls from the mixture about the size of a walnut and flatten them slightly.
  5. Heat the oil approximately to 180°C for a few minutes and drop the falafel balls into the hot oil and fry until they become toasty brown and crunchy, about 4 minutes.
  6. When they are tender, place them on a serving platter and garnish them with spring onions, chopped tomatoes, parsley pickles and fresh mint.
