Falafel With a yoghurt Dip. (+playlist)

Falafel is a middle eastern street food. Its totally vegetarian. Its a fried patty made of chick peas and broad beans. I omited broad beans and seasame to make it simple. Traditionally its served with wrapped in pita bread. This can be served as a snack or as a finger food. It tastes really nice. You can always adjust the recipe to your taste.
