I am terrified of shallow or deep frying at home...that or I am too cheap to pour a vat of oil into a pot...I haven't decided yet. Anyway, due to that I shy away from making all sorts of things that I would love to try. One of them is falafel. I love love love falafel. I love the falafel themselves and I love the mixture of sauces and pickles and...if you are lucky cabbage...but I've only made them at home once before, and on that occasion they were baked.
Trawling the internet last week I came across this recipe for pan fried Falafel Burgers. Despite not having a food processor to whizz all the ingredients up I thought I would give it a go.
These falafels were really good. The ingredients are minimal, and there is no tahini involved (something that I don't like buying cause it sits at the back of the fridge for ages). The only down side to pan fried or oven baked falafel...they are patties instead of lovely little crisp balls.
Oh...the flatbreads...they are Dan Lepard's Corn Oil Flour Tortillas...incredible as always!
