Air Fried Masala Falafel

@katsu_eats and I decided to create our own versions of a baked or air-fried falafel. For my spin off, I added typical Indian spices from my masala box! The falafels are filled with cilantro, a TON of mango powder (amchur), chili powder, turmeric and cumin. I served these delicious falafels with hummus, feta garlic dip, tomatoes, lettuce, red onion, and tortillas to wrap. 🌶️🥬🍅 They came out soft, crispy, and full of flavor!
