These spicy chickpea cakes are a popular street food all over the Middle East. Served in pitta pockets with a colourful crunchy salad, they are deliciously healthy as well as fun to eat.
If you'd like to make your own hummus, see the hummus recipe under Hummus Salad (on this website).
If you are taking this to work, give plenty of time for the falafel's to cool after cooking (i.e. do it the night before) AND build your colourful pitta just before you eat it (rather than pre-pitta'ing it)...or it may fall out of the foil and end up all over your accounting papers :/ WONDERFUL recipe, I'll try not to add my stupidity next time! - 04 Jun 2015

Easy to make and pretty tasty too, didn't have any fresh chilli which i think would probably have improved it. - 07 Nov 2010
