Falafel (Arabic: ?????? falaafil (help·info), Hebrew: ?????????; also known in Egypt and Sudan as ta’meya, Arabic ?????), is a fried ball or patty made from spiced fava beans and/or chickpeas. It is a popular form of fast food in the Middle East, where it is also served as a mezze (snack or tapas). The word “falafel” is the plural of the Arabic word ???? (filfil), meaning pepper.[1] Variant spellings in English include felafel and filafil.

Falafel is usually served as a sandwich wrapped in pita bread, and outside the Middle East, the term “falafel” commonly refers to this sandwich—falafel in a pita is typical street food or fast food. Along with the falafel balls, which may be crushed onto the bread or added whole, topping variations are usually included. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a mezze. During Ramadan they are sometimes eaten as part of an iftar, the meal which breaks the daily fast after sunset.
