I added mash potatoes for more volume, it’s a bit dry so I recommend making a tomato sauce and dipping the falafels in it or a Taziki sauce
Turned out quite good💛

Mine turned out dry even though the mix was moist snd sticky when I was shaping it. The cumin, coriander, garlic, and lemon gave it a wonderful flavor, though.

Really good. I will make it again. I made a couple of changes. I steamed cut-up sweet potato for 20 minutes to start instead of baking it for 45 minutes. Also, I used parsley instead of fresh coriander. I used 1 1/3 cups flour.

Amazing and would make it again for sure! I left overnight and they kept their shape a lot better 😊

Tasted alright, but definitely more of a side than a main course, which I would say doesn't fit the "falafel" description. Local grocery didn't carry the chickpea flour, used regular flour instead. Could be why it didn't blow my mind. On the plus side, using normal flour made it sticky right away, so no fridge or freezer time was necessary.
