My basic falafel is:
1lb chickpeas (dry/pre-soaking)
1 standard issue grocery store bunch of cilantro
a small pile of ground coriander
a variable amount of garlic
flour if needed
I have some Sumac that I put into our hummus, and I keep meaning to try it in the falafel but I forget. TBH, we make it so infrequently I haven't felt much of a need to change it up.
We do have a big ass jar of turmeric...
To the point where I've almost bought a deep fryer just to make them better/faster.
DON'T TEMPT ME!
I dare not take it. Not even to keep it safe.
Understand. I would use this fryer from a desire to do good... But over me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.
Oreos. I would fry a shitload of oreos.
