“Falafel” is one of those words I always spell wrong. Do you have a word/s like that? I also misspell “broccoli” wrong every damn time. I routinely spell fel-a-fel instead of fa-la-fel, and the little red spelling line on my computer is giving me wrinkles (untrue; but I like to say it ever since I worked with a girl who said she never reads books because reading gives you wrinkles). The real reason I’m so wrinkly is because I’m a body builder avoiding water a few days before a tournament, to make my gainz stand out. Also untrue, but body builders do that, which is weird. However, they are important to society so I’ll lay off the BB’s…
Anyway, I found a recipe and I was very tempted!
You see, falafel is one of those foods I never truly understood. Firstly, it’s shaped like a ball, which isn’t great. They’re slightly too large to eat in one bite, and there’s always an uneven distribution of falafel in a kebab. Why isn’t falafel a long sausage, for even flavour? Why aren’t more falafel shaped like burgers? Why is the plural of falafel still spelled falafel? The other issue is that falafel, unless straight out of the fryer, are dry. Terribly dry. Sometimes they’re dry even when fresh. There’s a reason that guy died with a falafel in his hand! Luckily, someone clever, like Elephantastic Vegan decided to solve dilemma #2 by putting the dry balls into a curry sauce. The ballios absorb the sauce, thereby becoming less dry. It’s simple, it’s clever and it’s here to solve the mysteries of the world.
