Falafel With Yogurt Sauce
Posted By Sylvia Britton On Saturday, March 27, 2010 @ 11:41 pm In Arts and Leisure | No Comments
Falafel is a dough made with chick peas or garbanzo beans and lots of spices. Its deep fried and that is perhaps why this southern U.S. girl likes it so much. Falafel is pronounced FA-LAW-FULL with the emphasis on the middle syllable. Both the ‘a’ sounds are like the British sound in “laugh”.
I had never had falafel until about 5 years ago when the children were studying Israel in school. I bought a mix from the store and made it here at home, It was very delicious and the whole family enjoyed it. Later, I was given a recipe by a friend to make homemade falafel. There is no comparison in the taste. I always make the homemade now. If you’ve never tried falafel and you’re not very fond of trying new recipes, I suggest that you buy a mix and try it first. But if you’re game for something new in the kitchen, try my homemade falafel recipe with the accompanying yogurt sauce.
We enjoy falafel stuffed into homemade pita bread and then we add chopped tomato, lettuce and the following yogurt sauce.
