Kidney Beans Falafel

Kidney Beans Falafel - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Generally falafels are prepared using chickpeas but we have replaced chickpeas with kidney beans. Traditionally this is Middle Eastern dish in which egg is also added, as I am a vegan so have omitted egg as well.
Still the taste has come out very crisp and nice.
