    Lennie's Note:

    I have not tried this, but, even though it requires deep frying, it just sounded too delicious to pass up. Since I wanted to keep the recipe handy, I thought I would share by posting it here for all to see -- and hopefully try. http://www.canadianliving.com/food/

    Falafels

    Tahini Sauce

    Also needed

    Directions:

    1. 1
      First, make Tahini Sauce.
    2. 2
      Place tahini in mixing bowl and add lemon juice.
    3. 3
      Slowly stir in the water; you are aiming for a very smooth mixture-- it will appear stiff at first but will thin out; add more water if necessary.
    4. 4
      Stir in garlic, parsley and salt.
    5. 5
      Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour; bring to room temperature and stir before serving falafels.
    6. 6
      Next, make falafels.
    7. 7
      Soak bulgur in hot water for 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Drain in a sieve, pressing out all excess moisture; place bulgur in a food processor, along with chickpeas.
    9. 9
      Pulse until chickpeas are finely mashed but not pureed.
    10. 10
      Place mixture in a bowl and stir in garlic, green onions, bread crumbs, parsley, egg, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce.
    11. 11
      In your preferred deep-frying vessel (a deep-fryer or deep pot or wok), heat oil to 350°F.
    12. 12
      Shape mixture into 1-inch balls.
    13. 13
      A few at a time, deepfry until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 4 minutes.
    14. 14
      Remove to paper towel-lined racks to drain.
    15. 15
      Divide equally among pita breads; drizzle generously with Tahini Sauce and add 1/2 cup shredded lettuce and 1/2 a chopped tomato to each serving.
    16. 16
      Serve immediately.

      As a die-hard falafel aficionado, I tried this recipe over the weekend. I found that although the outcome was very, very tasty, it took far too long to make. I will eat falafels 3+ times per week, so I typically buy a pre-mixed falafel powder from the bulk section of a nearby Asian food store. On the other hand, the tahini was absolutely fabulous and I will never-ever-ever buy a premade tahini sauce again. You can even make more, and keep it in the fridge in a Tupperware container.
