There is a 2 month Emilie offered you falafel house, and therefore I want to test another version with a recipe for falafel in the oven, but in miniature version. Of course, these small balls oriental are a little more dry in this version, but they do not require deep frying. This is a dish very nice that you can enjoy as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to a good salad green, accompanied with a white sauce, tahini. Has test !
