What I do is add a little salt, pepper, cumin, chili flakes and fresh coriander or chopped spinach to the mixture. Basically pimp them falafels!
Yes the dry mixes are the ones I'm used to, I will try a local store as you suggested thank you I will give Ramona a try thank you
Ramona's is the nicest I've had. Much better than the other brands, which are overloaded with coriander IMO. I think Ocado sells the frozen ones and Sainsbury's sells both fresh and frozen.
Ate 3 packs in one go, now I Falafel
I buy from local Mideast ethnic stores - they are mixes that you add water to and leave for about 30 mins, shape and fry. Brand escapes me but Made in Lebanon. Or I buy freshly made & cooked from a restaurant close by. Bit more expensive but absolutely divine!
