Falafel is a traditional oriental cuisine dish consisting of croquettes or meatballs made from chickpeas. But this recipe from red bean falafel that I have shared with RecetasGratis is a version of the traditional falafel because I have substituted the main ingredient for red beans, in such a way that there are some very rich bean croquettes or meatballs with a smooth texture, perfect to serve as a starter or main dish. You can serve them with yogurt sauce or with tahini in pita bread or with a varied salad for example.
