Falafel is a Middle Eastern dish that has a lengthy history in Arab nations and ancient Israel. The term falafel may derive from the Arabic word falfil, which is a plural of the word filfil, which means "pepper." These fried vegetarian fritters are often served with hummus and tahini sauce as part of a "falafel platter." They go well with toum, a Middle Eastern garlic sauce.
