Road Test Feedback…
I used double the quantity of beans and lots more parsley (I had huge amounts of both to use up!) and the felafels tasted absolutely delicious. Really morish. Only question I have is whether you put the flour into the mix or is it just for forming? I had some trouble with them not binding together and falling apart a little bit..
thanks for the recipe – its great
