Halal Cart Style Falafel Over Rice

If you are from New York and nearby areas, you know that NYC is full of food carts, serving different kinds of food, from hot dogs to Dosa, to falafel to Biryani to BBQ to desserts to Empanadas, you can find anything and everything there. But my favorite is Falafel carts, even you are not eating there and just passing by, the fragrance of food craves you to just stop and have it. I love to eat this whenever I get a chance to. For some people it's not hygienic, some it's religious issues, some you are in another part of the world where that is not possible so why not to make it at home and enjoy it. You can make falafel by frying or just baked, it's your choice. Just make rice and sauces and salad and you are all set.
