Got dry falafel mix, need instructions

Alice Patis | Apr 5, 200601:11 PM     12

So on a whim, I bought about a pound of dry falafel mix (just scooped the mix from a bin into a bag). I love falafels but have never made them so I thought this would be easier than making it from scratch. But I'm not sure how much water to use. Or what consistency the patties should be, as moist as mini burgers or what?

And what temperature should I have the oil for frying?

Also I have no idea how to make the pinkish white sauce. Googling for falafel recipes give a hundred variations on the sauce. I'd like it to be yogurt based, and if tahini is part of the sauce, can I sub something else since I don't want to go out and buy tahini.

Any help appreciated; photo report promised if it goes well!
