Trying Out : Baked Sweet Potato Falafel Recipe



“Oooo, this one’s look healthy and could be used if we have some sweet potatoes leftover.” Thank god we have sweet potatoes leftover. Source recipe : 101 Cookbooks What we think about the recipe:


Will it be like scones? or moist?

It looks like scones from Sarah’s thinking, but from Dina’s thinking, it will be moist  and when it was put inside the mouth it will melt (?)… That’s what we think from only viewing the picture though. What we think about this: Ferdina:

 Ok… this was a new taste… I really think this was undescribeable. I was actually 50-50 on this, some part of me liking it, the other part…. screaming ‘NOPE…’ The taste that we made was freshly sour and very perfume-y (most probably, because we add too much cilantro). I usually love the sweet and sour taste. Its just a new feeling, tasting that in sweet potato based dish for me. Now the texture is what boggled me up a bit though, the one that we made is very-very dry. As I looked into the picture from the original source, I really hoped that it would be moist in the inside and kinda crunchy on the outside. So I was a bit disappointed when I did my first bite. But I have to admit that this recipe is very easy to make, and might be delicious to someone else’s taste bud.


WOW! Wait, wait a second! There’s so many things happen in my mouth once i put it inside! Sweet, sour, a bit dry (maybe we cook it too long) and my nose kind a dancing to this dish. I don’t know whether i like it or not. This is new to me and i don’t really know how to describe it. At time like this, i really want to record our reaction and give the video to you. For your imagination, we make this face while eating it.

I hope it explain a lot.

Conclusion : I don’t think this recipe was made for us. CORRECTION! I don’t think we should make this recipe FOR NOW, i think we should go to a restaurant that can make this dish properly, then recreate it. Wish us luck, we don’t think we’ve seen palafel in Jakarta. Do you have another falafel recipe? Please give us your link. We really, really curious about this dish.
