Falafel are small, spicy chickpea patties. They are almost always topped with Tahini-Lemon Sauce, and served either in a sandwich with pita bread, or as an appetizer, either alone, or on a mezza platter. Traditionally, falafel are deep-fried, but they are equally good — and satisfyingly crisp — if pan-fried in a very hot skillet with a small amount of oil.
