  1. Drain the beans and grind them in a food processor with the onion, garlic, cilantro, parsley and jalapeño into a course paste. Season with the dried spices, salt and pepper. Add the baking powder and flour, mix well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oil to 350F / 175C. Dissolve the baking soda in the water and stir through the bean batter. Take ice-cream scoops of the batter and form into balls with wet hands. Fry the falafel in small batches in the hot oil until crisp and browned on all sides, about 3 -4 minutes. Drain on paper towel.
  3. Serve immediately, along with the pita bread, aioli, mango salsa and hot sauce.
