About this recipe: In this recipe for the Egyptian street food 'ta'ameya', fava beans (also known as broad beans) and herbs are blended together, then rolled in toasted sesame seeds and fried into crisp falafel. Serve in warm pitta breads.
You can substitute half the dried fava beans with chick peas if you are used to traditional falafel.

These were delicious, but I could not get them to stay together once I began frying them. The mixture came together beautifully and held together great until I put them in the oil. They never really crisped up and they began falling apart. Still tasted great though. I'm gonna try to figure out how to keep them together better next time b/c they are definitely worth trying again! Thanks for sharing. - 12 Aug 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
