One thought on “Falafel

  1. I tried this recipe and failed! 8 falafel balls in the pan stayed all soft, and when turning ended up a mess. I ended up pressing them all together to make one very messy pattie. May have been because I couldn’t bring myself to use 2cm of oil, only used a few tablespoons. Would not cook again.
