Falafel is a Middle Eastern dish. I like the way served/filling with pita bread along with hummus & tahini sauce. The original version of recipe never cooked chickpeas but here i cooked the chickpeas or can be used  canned chickpeas. But I prefer soaked and cooked and then ground coarsely along with other ingredients. My kids like falafel & its vegetarian so hence i thought to sharing it here.
