Vegetable Shawarma



When I posted Chicken Shawarma, soon I wanted to post the vegetarian version too as most of my fellow bloggers are vegetarians. The falafel recipe is already there in my space, and the below mentioned falafel recipe has got a slight variation from it. You can see the pictorial directions of shawarma here, only slight difference in the stuffing.
Ingredients
Falafel
Chick Peas: 1 ½ cup
Coriander leaf: ½ bunch
Parsley: ½ bunch
Green Chilli: 2
Onion: 1 small
Garlic cloves: 6
Cumin Powder: 1tsp
Coriander powder: 1 tbsp
Baking powder: ½ tsp
Bread Crumbs: ¼ cup
Oil: for frying
Salt: needed
Assembling
Lettuce
Onion
Tomato
Tahini Sauce (Can use the white Tahini Sauce instead of this too, I find no taste difference still I will soon update that recipe too)

Method of Preparation
Falafel
Soak the chick peas for 5 hours.
Wash and drain and blend the chick peas coarsely. (not to smooth paste not too crumbly)
Then in the blender add garlic, coriander leaf, parsley, onion and green chilli to a smooth paste.
Add this to the blended chick pea mix.
Then add cumin powder, salt and coriander powder.
Mix well with hand. Then add bread crumbs and baking powder to it and again mix well.
Make small balls from it and deep fry it medium heat oil till it is cooked well.
Drain and serve as snack or can make a sandwich filling.
Assembling
Take pita bread, Spread Tahini sauce on it.
Then add chopped onion, tomato, French fries and lettuce as per needed.
Then add 3 or 4 falafel length wise.
Roll it from one end to the other
Wrap with Parchment paper and serve hot.
