This is a terrible recipe. There is something missing... we had to add an egg since our first batch of fritters completely disintegrated while frying. The egg, in turn, made these rock hard and ineatible. Too bad, they sounded good but find another recipe.

Even my kids like these! They do not know they are healthy- they call them fancy nuggets. I use buckwheat flour to make them gluten free. I do mush the recipe by hand and they come out perfect every time.

We found these a little dry but good. I did have trouble getting the mixture to stay together so I added an egg. My daughter who is a vegetarian loved these. Thanks for the recipe

I used peanut butter instead of tahini; it was a bit dry but held together quite well. Besan is indeed Gluten free; and quite delicious! Thanks; it's been difficult to find a GF falafel and I loved these.

Yum. These are very, very tasty! I did have a little trouble with the fritters not holding together very well, but I think I drained the chickpeas a little too long! They were really, really dry when I started the dish. Other than that, these were fairly easy to make. The flavors all blended well. And the tsatzike sauce was out of this world! Again, this was a draining issue for me! Usually when I fix tsatziki sauce, it calls for seeding the cukes. Otherwise, they are too watery for the sauce. So I drained the cukes before using, also! Came out great! Thnx for sharing your recipe, the80srule. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.

Yeah, there's definitely something missing from this recipe - there needs to be some sort of a liquid as a binder. I used two eggs, but that made them a bit tough.
