The texture should not be too crumbly. It should hold the shape when you try to shape it.
If it is too crumbly add in a table spoon of water and mix well.

I do not have a falafel maker so I user two table spoon. I pressed the batter to one spoon and gently scooped it to the oil using the other spoon.

Heat the oil in a pan, once oil is hot enough drop in the falafel one by one and fry it till Golden brown on both sides.
