  1. The falafels will be crispy when it is warm.
  2. If you want to make big batch,make the balls the previous day and you can freeze it. When you are ready to make,just thaw it and deep fry.
  3. The air fried Falafel differs in taste and texture from the deep fried ones.
  4. You can serve this inside a wrap or you can have this as a snack.
