This was my first attempt at falafel and it turned out pretty well. It's one of those dishes where if you like the flavors -- parsley, cumin, coriander, dill weed -- then you'll probably like it. If you don't like the taste of those ingredients, you won't be converted by this recipe. Make sense? I got the recipe from allrecipes.com:
Sean's Falafel & Cucumber Sauce
I made a few changes:
- I used 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin instead of a full teaspoon.
- I doubled the sauce, but left the amount of dill weed the same: Use 2 (6 oz) containers of plain yogurt, a whole cucumber, 1 teaspoon of dried dill weed, 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, and salt and pepper to taste.
I served the falafel in pita bread with lettuce and tomatoes and the cucumber sauce.
I'd give this recipe 2 1/2 stars.
