Falafel

It’s been a while since I made any Non-Indian Cuisine. So I decided to whip up a Mediterranean fare for the day, consisting of Falafel, Pita bread and Hummus. Falafel is a fried patty, made with ground chick peas or fava beans or both. It is typically served in a Pita bread pocket with pickled vegetables, Hummus or Tahini and Salad. Falafel can be served as as appetiser as well
