Blend the broad beans in the R5 Plus, followed by the chickpeas. Set aside. Chop the peeled onion, parsley and peeled garlic clove, a small teaspoon of cumin and a pinch of baking powder in the R5 Plus. Stir this mixture into the bean and chickpea purée, adding ½ tablespoon flour. Using a spoon, form the mixture into walnut-sized balls. Leave to rest for twenty minutes. Fry in hot oil (180 °C). When the balls are a golden colour, remove them using a slotted spoon and leave them to drain on a wad of kitchen paper. Arrange the falafels in a serving dish and serve hot with tahini and salad leaves.
