Falafel is a popular arabic dish. Deep fried balls or patty made from ground chick pea. Falafel is a traditional Egyptian and middle eastern street food commonly served in a pita bread or can make sandwich. Falafel may also be eaten Alone as snack or can be served as starter.

          actually this falafel tastes best with tahini sauce. But I served with tomato sauce which also tasted good. But will sure share tahini dip soon with you. You can easily make this recipe with easily available ingredients in your kitchen. Kids will definitely love them a lot.
