I mean, in the back of my mind, I knew falafel's were deep fried; that's how they get their crunchy crisp flavor and their golden exterior. But I guess I never pictured them roasting in a tub of boiling hot oil.
Just take a look at this picture, tweeted by @thenarcicyst, and you'll see what I mean. I half expect to hear them screaming out for their lives as they burn, with high-pitched Arab voices going "sa3deeni!"
But I can't really help you falafels, I can only eat you. With love, of course.
