Cilantro Falafel | Falafel Recipe

Sugar, Spice, Etc

My mother in law makes fantastic cutlets. She makes them with chicken, tuna, mutton, veg- you name it. And I’ve seen how much effort she takes. It is a half-day-long process: between seasoning and cooking the meat &  potatoes, to making the cutlet mash and putting everything together with breadcrumbs before frying. It takes effort, but it’s definitely worth it in the end.

But on a regular day when I am looking for a quick fix, these falafels are perfect. Here’s the thing:

  • I have eaten falafel often enough. (I used to eat falafel wraps for lunch often at my first job.)
