  1. I have a private joke with a mate about falafel so this stuff has a soft spot in my heart, awesome photo too, sounds delicious!

  2. This one is too simple. I will some day soon because I love falafel.

  3. That looks pretty good. I don't think I've ever had a falafel before...

  4. Looks so delicious, thanks for the recipe, I gonna try this by myself!

  5. While these do look tempting, I think getting in the habit of frying food inside my own home could lead to an early death.

  6. Hmm... Its almost lunch time maybe I'll try and make this
