making falafel... in small quantities!

I love falafel... it is amazing. The last time I made it, I followed this recipe:

It turned out awesome. However, I experienced two problems:

1. the recipe was huge!
2. I didn't know how to deal with the oil

What I ended up doing was refrigerating the mix and filtering and refrigerating the oil. I did this for maybe a week before it all was used up. Still tasted good by the end of the week.

However - is this OK to do? I didn't want to toss out all that oil every time - it just seemed... wrong!

Also, could I freeze the mix, then thaw it out and fry it when I'm ready to serve? That'd be ideal in my book.
