Was reading up, preparing for the next family celebration, on falafel making and hit upon this video and wondered if anyone has tried a waffle falafel and your tips for making delicious homemade falafel.
Falafel is one of many universal food languages, how do you approach it?
I’ve made it from scratch once. And from the date stamps on these photos it was 2007. Came out great, first attempt making it with soaked chickpeas.
I may have use it bit more parsley than the average falafel based on color. They were good, just labor intensive. I used a meat grinder to grind the soaked chickpeas. I made a bunch so the frying was probably the most labor intensive part.
I’ve also made mark bittman’s recipe several times and baked them. Ultimately it’s just too easy for me to get great falafel with all the fixings for fairly cheap all over the city (cart guys on the corner fry them to order!) so i stopped making them- and i lack a cuisinart so it was a PITA to make with my blender
