Curry, basil, meet the falafel. I’m sure that the falafel gods are frowning upon this. The nerve of me for daring to mix curry and basil in a falafel recipe! To be honest, I don’t know what I was thinking. I have been into making fusion dishes lately, so I thought it would be a good idea to toss in some curry powder. While I may not have curried favor with the falafel gods, these were pretty darn tasty! Did you catch the pun?! Don’t worry, there are plenty more cheese jokes up my sleeve.
I know that the falafels served at restaurants are perfectly shaped spheres of delectable delights. I didn’t want to deep fry my falafels, so I pan-fried them, hence their flattened form. Healthiness comes first, right?
These falafels go well with your salads, tucked in some pita bread or wrap with vegetables and hummus, or as a snack. I may have eaten three falafels while photographing these, but don’t tell anyone! It would be cruel and unusual punishment for me if I had to photograph the falafels without having couple of them. Besides, I needed some fuel before my evening workout. Yes, I can always come up with excuses to eat more.
Q: Anyone else enjoy fusion dishes as much as I do?
