SO DELICIOUS! Thank you, Sean! I never thought of making homemade falafel, but I saw this recipe and was immediately inspired. I used 2 good tablespoons of dried parsley instead of fresh (the parsley in my fridge had seen better days). That was the only change I made to the recipe. I smashed the chickpeas with a potato masher. I added *almost* the full cup of breadcrumbs, but left maybe a tablespoon or two behind. I scooped the mix with a 2-tablespoon scoop (like an ice cream scoop, but smaller) and flattened them on a floured surface with the bottom of a floured glass. I fried them in corn oil. I ended up with 22 or so patties (hard to know - I ate probably half a dozen of them while I cooked). I repeat - these are SO DELICIOUS. I didn't even bother with the sauce. I plan to eat these on salads for lunch during the week. By the way, the only time these started to fall apart in the oil was when I overcrowded the pan halfway through the fry batches - I think the oil was too cold, maybe? Otherwise, they fried up perfectly without any issues. (So delicious.)
