    My favourite road side snack. It has a crispy exterior while the inside is soft and succulent.

      I've made this recipe 2 times and both times it's come out perfect. After reading many falafel recipes, I did add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 tablespoon flour but otherwise I followed everything as written by Charishma. Each time I made this recipe, everyone has enjoyed the taste from my 2 year old to my in-laws who are in their 70's. The one problem I had is getting everything to fit in my food processor. I had to split the ingredients and grind everything in two batches and then I mixed it all in together in a large bowl. The second time I made this, I made the mixture the day before I needed it. I kept it in a Tupperware container. The following day, I just shaped them and fried them a few hours before the guests arrived. I severed it with Tahini sauce. Yummmmmm! I've already added this recipe to my favorite recipe list and will be making it often. Thanks for the recipe Charishma!
