Falafel,I always thought were Indian snacks but a food buddy told me that Falafel are from Middle East.She tells me,Falafel are fried balls or patties.I remember my mom making Falafel all the time at home & she made Falafel quite an Indian way with lots of chopped coriander,a bit of besan.My recollection of Falafel has been what my mom made always.Though now I know the origin of Falafel.
