About this recipe: Made with yellow split peas, onion, fresh mint and spices, these falafel are great served in pitta with salad, yoghurt and mint sauce - a delicious vegetarian lunch or supper.
i'd be interested if anyone has followed this recipe. You need to cook the split peas after the 24 hour soak !!!!!!!! - 25 Jul 2009
I have never had a falafel before, let alone make some and I must say these were easy to make and tasted delicious. Rather than "mashing" the split peas though, as it was a bit tough to do, I used a food processor and blended the ingredients. They were a big hit. - 11 Dec 2011
In my view the peas do need to be cooked after soaking! I cooked the peas, but the rounds did not hold shape very well, so I coated them in breadcrumbs and shallow fried them. ...they still turned out tasty and went down very well at dinner :-) - 28 Mar 2016
