Great recipe - increased the chilli powder for more kick and used fresh coriander rather than parsely. Also baked rather than fry them.

My flatmate has just made these. I wasn't expecting much because they don't look very appetising. However appearances are deceiving! They were gorgeous....such flavour and so filling! My new favourtie recipe.

This is fantastic! I haven't seen the attraction of falafel until now - super quick, easy and great flavours. A great healthy lunch. Only comment is I think this makes three good portions, rather than four skinny ones.

Scrummy yummy!! I've just made and scoffed them with my hubby with an ice cold beer,it is 10.30pm! I literally read recipe half an hour ago and it made me wanna make em. prob not as healthy as a lot of you guys but I made them into smaller patties and shallow fried them. I used fresh coriander also and used fresh chilli in place of harrisa. I made a lime mayo to dunk them in and they were lip smackingly tasty!!!

Make sure you season really well and definitely include the tomato salsa as the fallafels were abit bland, my kids thought they tasted of cardboard oops! Very easy to make though and kept their shape well when cooked.

Always amazing, and go down well with all my friends. Definitely needs a squeeze of lime juice over the top of it though - finishes it off perfectly!

Really enjoyed these, I added 1/2 an onion and 2 chilli's to give it some heat. Full of flavour compared to a lot of bland vegetarian food that I have made in the past. Will make again.

These were really great - I'll be making them again for sure. Very tasty and healthy too! I made some sweet potato chips to go with them!
