Recipe:

Start with preparing the falafel. Add all the ingredients for falafel into a food processor and make a course mixture. Leave it in the refrigerator for one hour.

To prepare the hummus, add peas, feta cheese, tahina paste, olive oil, salt & pepper in a food processor and pulse until smooth puree is formed.

Remove the chickpea mixture from the refrigerator and roll into medium sized balls. Deep fry in batches for about 3 to 4 minutes or till golden brown and drain on paper towels

To make a wrap, warm the tortillas a bit. Spread a generous layer of hummus and place 3 – 4 falafel balls on top. Layer the wrap with desired amount of salad and mayonnaise. Roll up the tortilla and tuck it well.
It is now ready to be served. Enjoy!
