Step 4: Form mixture into balls and place on baking tray lined with parchment paper. (I made 14 falafel from this mixture.) Bake in oven preheated to 200 c for about 20 minutes.

Step 5: The falafel should look like this when they are done. Enjoy hot or cold. They can be eaten on their own or you can add them to a salad or wrap. They should be OK kept in the fridge for a few days.
