  1. Pulse chickpeas, onion, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, and spices together in a 2-quart food processor until just combined into a wet paste. Avoid overblending.
  2. Transfer the chickpea mixture to a large bowl and mix in bread crumbs until just combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, or overnight.
  3. Shape the chilled falafel mixture into 1-inch balls, making around 18-20 balls.
  4. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a large frying pan with high sides to 350°F (180°C). Fry the falafel balls in batches of 6 for 3 minutes, flipping halfway. Once golden brown and crispy, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Serve the falafel as desired, such as in a sandwich, as a salad topping, or over greens with a side of tahini sauce.
