A falafelle is a sandwich made with chickpeas, chickpea flour, tomato, onion, olive oil, cumin and other spices.
This tasty combination is known for its crunchy, salty and sweet texture, which is a major ingredient in Casablancas falafels.
The Moroccan falafellas come in two varieties, the Lebanese-style falafela and the Turkish-style kabab.
The Lebanese falafells are more tender and can be served with grilled vegetables or mashed potatoes.
Turkish falafeltakes are served with hummus and mayonnaise.

Casafeles Casafels are served in two kinds: the traditional falafeling and the homemade falafello.
The traditional falefels are more like a grilled fala and are served alongside a salad with tomato sauce and fetas.
The homemade falabelles are more akin to a crostini, but they are served as a sandwich with a salad and a croissant on the side.
The ingredients of the traditional and homemade falefells are similar but they can be made with different kinds of chickpeons.
You can also make your own falafelling and make your falafeal sandwich, called a falefelle.
