homemade falafel and condiment/side help

I know there are already some falafel posts out there and I've looked them over....the thing is, I don't eat much falafel and I'm making it from scratch tonight, as well as homemade pita bread. I have the dough rising in the fridge, I have the chickpeas (only chickpeas, no favas) soaking overnight in water, I've purchased onion, parsley and cilantro....I have tahini for a sauce as well as yogurt and cucumber but I'm looking for advice on baking soda/powder, fry temp., ideal size to make the balls, and additional toppings or sides to add, I haven't settled on a recipe yet so if there is one that stands out, let me know! (I'm worried they'll be dense or dry or dull) I once went to a falafel restaurant in DC where they had a bar of toppings to put on your pita which really sealed the deal for me. Any ideas about this? Thanks so much for any input you might have!
