Soak beans overnight in water. Drain and rinse. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. 2 inches of oil in a frying pan will suffice. I prefer to use vegetable or canola oil, but olive oil can be used also.
Place beans in food processor and blend. Add remaining ingredients to form a thick paste-like consistency. If too thick, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until desired consistency.
Remove falafel mixture from processor. Spoon falafel into hot oil by the tablespoon. Fry for about 2 minutes or until falafel is a golden brown color.
Serve falafel by itself, or with hot pita bread with veggies, hummus, or tahini sauce.
