Hello Foodies,
Welcome to our channel.

       Falafel, the ultimate Mediterranean street food, which is most often served stuffed into pita bread. It is a simple, healthy and protein-rich meal and everyone's favorite too! These fried vegetarian fritters are often served along with hummus and tahini sauce.
        When falafel is made the traditional way, is indeed a vegan food, it’s a great source of protein for people who have cut meat out of their diet or who are vegetarian. It’s relatively low in fat and has no cholesterol if you fry it in heart-healthy oil. And if you top it with veggies in a pita, it becomes a filling and nourishing meal! Best way to make a falafel pita, start with a layer of hummus deep inside the pocket, then add the falafel, onions, lettuce, tomatoes and hot sauce and lastly top with a thin layer of tahini sauce.
         Today I have prepared it by using three methods, such as non fried falafel (Falafel Appe), Baked Falafel and Fried Falafel.
          We loved this nonfried version and which is low in fat and high in protein and has no cholesterol.
