I'm going to try it for the first time tonight.

What is best to eat it with? Should it be eaten hot or cold?

Hot, wraps with salad and yoghurty mint sauce.
Sliced red onion too.

hoummus, I tend to spread hoummous on a wrap and put falafel in it sprinkle a bit of hot sauce add some salad and eat as a sandwich type thing

hummus & salad, and - if you can get it celeriac remoulade - if not try with coleslaw, yummy. If you're making it yourself from a packet I prefer shaping it into a burger style patty rather than the little balls cos it keeps the inside nice & moist!

I have both salad and houmous so it looks like I am sorted. Thanks all.

Hot sauce!

Plus hoummous, minty yoghurt, salad of cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce diced with lemon juice squeezed on top.

Second making flat patties rather than balls.

Mmmmmmmm falafels!

It's supposed to go in pita bread with salad, tahina and hummous, if you're doing it proper Israeli style. And be eaten hot.

i like them warmed, with cous cous. big salad, and some fruity mango chutney. chuck a load of sunflower seeds over the salad--lush.

i am veggie, and have just dicovered tesco's own frozen falafel, brilliant staple, and cheap.

Mmmm falafel.

Tahini is good too if you can get it. Shredded red cabbage is also nice if you're doing it in pitta breads or wraps.

How do you make falafel?

Allalonenow Mon 15-Oct-12 10:18:23

I have them hot with mayo or yoghurt dip as an apero, but I'll be trying them in pitta now.

I chop up red onion, garlic, tons of parsley and coriander and a tin of chick peas - then whizz using a stick blender. Pat them into 'cakes' and dip them in flour then gently fry.

valiumredhead Mon 15-Oct-12 12:55:39

Oh and add lemon juice!

catinwitchyboots Mon 15-Oct-12 13:03:53

Cheers Val. I'm going to attempt them now!

valiumredhead Mon 15-Oct-12 13:05:05

Oh and salt and pepper too - play around a bit until you get it how you like it.

catinwitchyboots Mon 15-Oct-12 13:33:57

Can I use dried herbs or do they need to be fresh?

valiumredhead Mon 15-Oct-12 13:53:47

I would say fresh - you need LOADS - great big handfuls grin
