Finding my falafel

I love falafels!  Our favorite place to eat is the Olive Tree in Kahala because they make THE BEST Greek food.  It’s too bad my kids don’t have a taste for it…yet.  We’ll keep trying.

Anyway, I wanted to try my hand in making falafels and what a journey.  There are recipes all over the place so finding out what you need isn’t hard.  The assembly was the challenge.  My first few attempts was a complete fail.

It kept falling a part in the frier and I couldn’t understand why.  As I was reading through a few more recipes, I realized I was missing one of the most important ingredient – flour.

Adding flour made COMPLETE sense.  I was on a roll after that.

It turned out ok.  My wife liked it which is enough for me.  I think my next attempt will include more flour and salt.

In the meantime, I’ll just go to Olive Tree on a regular basis for inspiration and guidance.
