Fried Falafel 

Today I made chickpeas falafel. Me and my family loves falafel. Its a very popular recipe.
Falafel are healthy, full of protein and fiber. It depend on your choice, if you want bake or deep fry
falafel. Because I made fried and baked falafel. You can certainly use the deep fryer for this falafel recipe but baked falafel is very healthy. It isn't necessary to add a lot of ingredients to make falafel.  Oh my daughter is very crazy for falafel. She asked me 'mommy every weekend make falafel'. Actually, falafel is a very tasty recipe.
