The last time I went to Trader Joes I found their tzatziki
“Ground fava beans, ground chick peas, corn meal, flower, dehydrated onion, parsley, cracked wheat, baking powder, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), salt, spices”
Most times when I make falafel at home I try and bake them. They just don’t exactly hit the spot. My favorite it from a hole in the wall restaurant that gives you the best falafel you’ve ever tasted. Frying them would be the only way to satisfy my craving. If you’re going to have fried foods you might as well make them yourself! You mix water into the falafel mix and let everything sit for an hour. After the hour is up you’re ready to form the balls and throw it in the oil.
After they were perfectly brown and crispy I laid them on a few paper towels on a plate and let some of the oil drain off.
Add the tzatziki sauce on top and it’s like I had my own little Mediterranean tapas restaurant in my own home.
