A common theory is that the dish originated in Egypt. Sources trace the name to the Arabic word meaning "pepper". Falafel grew to become a common form of street food or fast food in the Middle East.
A healthy and nourishing alternative to meat. Falafel is made with a combination of ground chick peas, herbs and spices rolled into a round shape and deep-fried.
A 1/2-cup portion of falafel contains 3.42 milligrams of iron and 585 milligrams of potassium, which is 12 percent of the 4,700 milligrams of potassium you need every day. Falafel supplies zinc, calcium and magnesium, too. A 100-gram serving of falafel has 104 micrograms of folate, which is about one-fourth of the 400 micrograms adults need each day.
