Falafel with Tatziki Sauce
Falafel is typically fried, and don’t get me wrong, I’m all for deep-frying.
I tried to fry these. I really did. But they just fell apart! So I fried them in a frying pan without oil. So, technically they aren’t falafel, but they tasted like falafel and they looked like falafel, so dagnabbit, I’m going to call them falafel!Tatziki Sauce A 2-inch piece of cucumber, chopped very small 3/4 cup plain yogurt 1 tablespoon granulated garlic powder 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 4 mint leaves, minced salt and pepper, to taste Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Chill for 2 hours and serve with falafel or your favorite middle-eastern cuisine.
