Baked Falafel with beetroot and carrot salad

1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoons of coriander or flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1tbsp olive oil

  1. Food process all the ingredients except the chick peas to a paste
  2. Add the chick peas and pulse a few times
  3. Form into 2cm balls and place on an oven tray
  4. Bake at 200degC for 20 minutes , turning the balls over half way through

Carrot and Beetroot Salad

  2. Dress with lemon juice and a teaspoon of tahini

Yogurt Dressing
Yogurt mixed with chopped fresh coriander

Oven Element

This weekend all the fuses blew in the flat , traced the source to the oven , though the fan spinning there was no heat

A quick Internet search showed that the fan element was probably broken , the fan was till working but no heat . I ordered an element online its arrived promptly the next day , there are lots of sites online offering advice and guidance on fitting elements including You Tube vidoes , all with the disclaimer that …. “Attempting work or repairs on electrical appliances can be dangerous and should only be carried by a suitably qualified person using the correct tools and test equipment, with the appliance disconnected from the mains supply.”

I borrowed the correct tools , disconnected it from the mains , strapped on my headtorch and set to 45 minutes later my oven is now working , the thrill is immense
