Ratings & Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this for my family. I made this for my family. They ate it but the falafel had no flavor. It needed more spices or something to give it some taste. The cucumber and tomato salad was good and everyone enjoyed the sour cream mixture. I had to go to 2 stores to get all the ingredients, too. I might make it again but add something for flavor. Also, the falafels fell apart and were sticky and hard to shape.

Pan frying falafel is next to impossible to do neatly. The mixture was far too wet to make into patties right away. Even after refrigerating, they were still very sticky. I am looking for other recipes, specifically those with oil cooking temps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have to agree with most of the reviewers. I have to agree with most of the reviewers. Flavor was OK and the tomato/cucumber sauce was excellent. We had difficulties trying to fry. They were constantly falling apart. It would have been better served as a sloppy joe. I will try again but search the internet for a better recipe for the falafals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I don't know what I did wrong, but mine would not fry properly. I don't know what I did wrong, but mine would not fry properly. It was like trying to fry hummus-all mushy and falling apart. The flavor was good, we still shoved it in the pitas and ate it up. The consistency just wasn't right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have not made this yet but it sounds good. I have not made this yet but it sounds good. I wonder if instead of frying I can back the patties? This way there's less oil and no falling apart. I gave 3 stars because it sounds good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. Fantastic. Full of flavor and definitely something different to try, which is always great to have a variety. Wouldn't change the receipt a bit.
