I was showing an Indian friend of mine a gem of a store in West Philly and she was teaching me about products she uses. She turned me on to the pre-made falafel mix. I was skeptical at first. I explained to her that I have tried on so many occasions to make homemade Falafel and they usually just fall apart. She chuckled and said no no..this is what I use. I even bake it to make it more healthy. I reviewed the mix ingredients and there are ingredients I would have never thought to use, so I thought why not give it a try. It is just $2.60.
This is now a staple item for me. The Falafel turned out amazing and so easy! I simply made the mix up before I went to work. It gave it time to set up. Then I fried the falafel in a matter of minutes. A very economical and delicious meal!
