Re:Falafel Sandwich with Tomato-Cucumber Salad

I found that the ingredients did not bind together well enough. The patties fell apart in the pan when I was cooking the first batch. Adding bread crumbs alone did not improve the situation so I added an egg to the second batch and the result was much better. Also, I think the amount of recommended salt and spices was a bit conservative, so I had to add a bit more salt, coriander and cumin to flavor the falafel mix. I also added some finely minced Italian parsely to the second batch to get some of that nice green coloring and parsely taste into the falafel. This might also be better with sauteed rather than raw onions in the chickpea mixture. That said, this recipe is WAY better than boxed falafel mix and I would make it again, but will slightly tweak the recipe the next time around.
