Fa-fa-fa-falafels for #MeatlessFridays

Homemade and partly handmade, my first endeavour at creating falafels was admittedly (and expectedly) disastrous.

The mixture simply would not blend properly, while the hard headed chickpeas decided to revolt and remain hard as ever. The egg and olive oil were not enough to bind the batter, so I considered blood but settled with more oil.

Still, I persevered with a fork and this decided to have a crack at this virtue called patience.

After an HOUR (I thought I could do it in 15 minutes) the patties were shoved in the freezer and later deep fried to tropical tan and uneven crisp proportions.

Thanks to taste.com.au for the recipe, sans the coriander. I will improve upon the many flaws for the next version!

On a final note, I forgot to make any kind of dipping sauce. Good thing, it goes well with mustard!
