I made falafels last night for dinner that were just as good as the ones at the street fairs. I changed the recipe a bit- we didn't have time for them to sit in the refrigerator (didn't notice that part when I was planning dinner) so I added a couple of tablespoons of extra flour and cooked them right away. I also forgot the garlic while everything was in the food processor (I was tired, OK?) so I threw in some garlic powder and stirred it in right before I made the patties. We had them on pita bread with a quick.... tzadziki.. (spelling?) sauce made with plain yogurt, diced cucumber, cumin, and dill. We also added lettuce, tomato, and some diced scallions. YUM-O.

PS: DH made the tza... yogurt sauce. He looked up several recipes on-line then made his own by throwing together Greek yogurt with some diced cucumber, seasoned with dill, cumin, and a touch of paprika. (He says he'll leave out the paprika next time, but I think it was great just the way it was.)

I have never had a falafel but I have always wanted to try one.
