Falafel is a tasty, versatile staple in many Middle Eastern and North African countries. As a result recipes vary, in Egypt where it's said to originate they like to use Fava beans, and role in sesame seeds for a better crunch, whilst in Israel they might use chickpeas, adding lots of fresh herbs like coriander or parsley.
The recipe below is good starter Falafel, it works well if catering to a large groups. I serve alongside middle eastern style accompaniments like pita bread, Israeli salad, humus, Tahini sauce and a mint yogurt coleslaw.
I hope you enjoy!
