Falafel (/fəˈlɑːfəl/; Arabic: فلافل, [fæˈlæːfɪl] [listen]) is usually a deep-fried Middle-Eastern delicacy in the shape of a ball or small patty. Falafel is made from ground chickpeas and/or fava (broad) beans, commonly served in a pita or wrapped in a flatbread known as lafa with salads, together with pickled vegetables, and tahine, or tahine-based or spicy sauce.
Falafels may also be eaten as a snack or served as part of a Mezze, a plate containing little savoury Middle Eastern delicacies.
