Home made falafels in a pita pocket

Ohhh I love falafels! At Prahran Market in Melbourne is this little food truck “The Falafel Man” who feeds us the best falafels in town. I have tried to recreate these delicious and crispy chickpea patties. They are best served for lunch in a pita pocket with some fresh salad, tomatoes, olives and vegan tzaziki. Yum!
