    Falafel is a ball or patty made from ground chickpeas and/or fava beans. Falafel is usually served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flat bread known as lafa. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables and hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a mezze.

    Falafel is actually the plural word for bean in Arabic. The singular being 'ful'. Since falafel is made of groung chick peas, a bean (and other veggies sometimes) that's what they call it. tastes good and is pretty healthy other than the frying... =)
