In the blogosphere, I've been seeing a couple of posting about how to make falafels without deep-frying, and have been intrigued by the idea of making waffled falafel patties using the waffle iron!
I usually make falafels from dried, soaked chickpeas that are ground up, not a mix (as it seems is often used by bloggers). Is the mix something that is essential for a successful result? Any other tips you might suggest for this project?
Am hoping to make this weekend (I own the food processor, friend owns the waffle iron....) I have hopes that the waffle iron will produce crisp outsides and moist insides with minimal mess or excess fat. But if that fails, maybe we'll do a line-up of deep-fried, sauteed and baked ones in addition and see what works best.....
