Falafel’s many flavors

A single word may have many meanings, and that is especially true when it comes to food! To me, the word “falafel” conjures up an image of fried chickpea croquette; but the flavors, shapes and contents of the simple falafel may vary widely by country. Community Radio of Northern Colorado has a very interesting piece about what falafel is to a variety of cultures in the Bay Area, from Sudanese to Israeli.
