In this article, I will introduce the recipe of traditional Middle Eastern food, Falafel, used red beans as an alternative to fave beans.
Basically this traditional food includes a lot of spices. However, this time we used only curry spices, garlic, green pepper, and pepper, which made it taste like Arabian Croquette.

・cloves garlic 1/2
・curry spices 1 tsp
・black pepper 1/4 tsp
・salt 1’4 tsp

2 Put ingredient A into your food processor along with oatmeal and pulse until a rough, coarse meal forms
3 Boil the red beans and drain. Put them into your food processor and pulse.
4 Separate the mixture into 6 and form them into round balls.
5 Fry them with 180℃ oil for one minute.
