The last time I tried to make falafel myself they fell apart - and I can't find that recipe in any case. But I want to try again. They are so healthy and I think they will be a hit with my ds1 and his friends, especially in pitta bread with hoummous.

So does anyone have a foolproof recipe and some hints for making sure they don't fall apart?

Try this one?

Never done a link before though so might not work!

Oh dear, it didn't. I'll try again.

have a look at this

Or if you go to the BBC recipe website, they have four or five recipes, you could take your pick!!

Thanks v much evansmummy, I didn't have a chance to do any on Wednesday but I have printed out the Ainsley recipe and will try it when I next have the opportunity. I'm always a bit wary of anything that involves deep-fat-frying, tbh, but I'll give it a go.

I've got a good falafel recipe. I'll need to hunt it out though and type it this space... Do you make your own hummus? I never seem to get it quite right!

I have similarly never managed to make home-made hoummous taste quite right. But I have wondered... the shop-bought stuff doesn't use olive oil so I might try one day using sunflower oil as that's far blander.

Will keep an eye out for your falafel recipe

apparently you need to blend falafel for ages when you make them to break the chickpeas down properly.
