6. Mistakes/Problems you might face while making falafel:

  2. Don't forget to soak the chickpeas over night as it makes them soft, which helps in making the mixture.

  3. While mixing all the ingredients together, make sure to mix them only till a thick paste is formed, don't over mix otherwise it will turn into hummus.
