Crispy on the outside, and creamy on the inside, just as advertised! Fabulous falafel. I didn't make the tahini or cilantro sauce, just whipped up some tzasiki instead. I would reformat this so each recipe's ingredients are separately listed; it was a bit daunting. I did add at least double the amount of spices, but that is a personal preference. Didn't use turmeric either. Thanks!
the falafel tasted very good, and even though i fried it with some trepidation (as i have watched patties turn to mush before my eyes), these did not fall apart. however, i used MUCH less than the quantity of oil specified - not only for health reasons, but i have also found that with too much of oil, they are inclined to crumble apart. also, my blender didn't quite puree the chickpea mix as well as i would have liked, but if that happens, you can still coarsely smash it around with the back of a spoon. i didn't make the sauces since i was in a hurry, and instructions for it were not very reader-friendly - it would be better if the ingredients were separated into the components to which they belong.
