    I loved these, i recommend serving with a little hummous in a pitta. You can also add peas and sweetcorn to the recipe. Be sure to chop your onions very small.

    I agree with jal. Also, use gram flour and breadcrumbs in place of ordinary flour. I like the addition of carrot here. A good sauce for this is yoghurt mixed with a little tahina.

    Give it a nice ending. Put the fried falafels in a tortilla or rumaali roti. Depending on one's choice, add some garlic chutney or mayonnaise, add some cucumber slices, add some lemon vinegar. Now serve with a mint on it
