Today I discuss making falafel, a middle eastern dish that is very common as a street food and claimed as the national dish in many countries. It's made from chick peas and flavored with onion, garlic, parsley, lemon, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper etc. Typically it's deep fried but my version is oil free and either baked or sauteed in a non-stick pan. Most falafel is served inside pita bread and adorned with tahini sauce, cucumbers, tomatoes and sometimes yogurt.
