I've been making delicious falafel in the crockpot, but that feels like cheating (plus, it contains egg), so I decided to attempt real falafel.
Did I have my work cut out for me! The mixture turned out too watery to hold its shape, so I had to wing it...
I added extra flour, breadcrumbs, and smashed chickpeas until it thickened enough to be formed into patties. To make sure it would hold its shape, I kept it in the freezer while preheating the deep fryer.
The result, though a little too mushy, was flavorful, and scrumptious to look at...
I served it in homemade whole wheat flatbreads with tzatziki sauce, lettuce, and tomato.
This is not over, I will master falafel!
