Falafel: canned chickpeas, or soaked, dried chickpeas?

ursy_ten | Apr 18, 2011 05:07 AM

I've decided I'd like to try and make my own falafel - but am not sure which way to go.

I can find recipes which call for canned chickpeas, and recipes which call for soaked, dried chickpeas (but not cooked). I even found a recipe that called for chickpea flour. I imagine that the end result between all 3 recipes would be quite different.

Does anybody with prior falafelling experience have any comparisons to note? I'd greatly appreciate your opinions.
