    jc12972's Note:

    I love falafel! And where has couscous been all my life? This is my second attempt making falafel. The first time was a learning experience (not too good). But this one turned out really good. Next time I will try it with dried chick peas.

    5. 5
      Drop spoonfuls of the chickpea mixture onto a plate with 1/4 cup of flour. Roll into balls and press very gently into patties.
    6. 6
      When oil is hot, reduce heat to med/low then fry patties in batches for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
    7. 7
