The Falafel Connection, in four languages.

As guests of the Guney Restaurant and as part of the Galata Visibility project, we re-created Karl Heinz Jeron’s Falafel recipe, which uses lentils instead of chickpeas as its base.

With a professional kitchen at our disposal, we decided to give the deep fryer a try, which quickly disintegrated our first few falafel experiments. After adding more flour to the balls, they emerged whole, crispy and utterly delicious.
