This is nigh on the exact recipe I use for falafel, and I can confirm that it's remarkably yummy, given how cheap and easy it is. I would say, if you finely chop, blitz in a food processor or even grate the onion, there's no need to cook. Also, you can use curry powder, but check whether it contains salt before considering the seasoning. Some fresh coriander isn't half bad, as an addition.
