in the kitchen with: matkonation’s falafel – Design*Sponge

OK, here’s the deal: Four years ago, artist Susan Schwake offered us a falafel recipe for the column that we didn’t end up posting. (Sorry, Suzie!) I had tried making falafel and found that the recipes I used had no “binder” in them, so when I fried them, they just broke into a million pieces. Susan’s recipe had flour in it, so I was dubious. To settle the score, we met up in Muenster and went to her favorite falafel shop and asked. They looked at us like we’d insulted their mothers when we asked if there was any binder. They said, “NO, NEVER!!!” Fast-forward to this year, and some colleagues bought me falafel for lunch, claiming it was the best they’d ever had outside of countries where falafel is eaten often. That gave me the idea to check with Israeli photographer/food stylist team Matkonation to see if they had a recipe for falafel that could answer this “binder/no binder” question. How do you make your falafel? (Don’t tell me with a mix!!!) See Matkonation’s recipe for Israel’s official street food, Falafel, after the jump!
