I love me some falafel.

I’ve had some pretty great falafel over the years in my travels. However, when I crave falafel here at home, I am usually disappointed with the results. There are chain restaurants who have it on their menu, but it is not worth the time. Locally there are attempts to make falafel, but in my opinion they never have the right balance. I want my falafel to be a crispy, crunchy textured outside and have a soft and airy flavor packed interior. My quest continues here in Des Moines, but in the meantime I will try to make my own at home.
