Falafel is a middle eastern recipe. It is a deep-fried ball made from chick peas. I used cooking plantain instead of chickpeas. This recipe was started as a mistake. I was about to make vaazhakaai podimas. When I pressure cooked it, it was over cooked. So I neither want to continue with the same recipe nor want to waste it. I want to make something different out of it. And the outcome was plantain falafel. Once I have heard my brother saying about falafel. It was in this way, the plantain falafel was made at home.
