Ok, I made some falafel (first time I made it) for my fam the other night. It was good, but it was missing something...I KNOW you guys have a recipe you'd share :)

did you use hummus or beans?
because egyptian falafels (ta3meyah), made of beans, taste exponentially better than lebanese falafels

falafil from hummus? who ever heard of such a thing?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

It'll also lead to another kind of blow - the sort best done in the smallest room in the house.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
