What is falafel ?
The falafel or faláfel is a croquette of chickpeas and spices, very typical in Middle Eastern cuisine.
If you want to do it at home, it is very simple and with very easy to find ingredients .
Here I show you how to make it fried (which is how it is usually eaten) or baked for a healthier option.

If you make them fried they will be something more juicy, but in the oven they are also very rich, so if you want a healthier version, choose to bake them.
In the case of baking them, I advise you not to bake the entire batch at once, only those that you are going to consume, since if you do all of them and then you have to reheat them on another occasion, if they remain drier.
Make only those that you are going to consume in the oven and the rest of the balls you can freeze, take them out when you need them and make them without the need to defrost them
