Wikipedia: Falafel
Falafel or felafel (/fəˈlɑːfəl/, /-ˈlæf-/; Arabic: فلافل‎‎, [faˈlaːfɪl], dialectal: [fæˈlæːfel]) is a deep-fried ball, doughnut or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food, commonly served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as taboon; “falafel” also frequently refers to a wrapped sandwich that is prepared in this way. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a meze (assortment of appetizers).

Wikipedia: Hummus
Hummus (/ˈhʊm.əs/, /ˈxʊm.ʊs/, or /ˈhʌm.əs/; Arabic: حُمُّص‎‎, full Arabic name: hummus bi tahini Arabic: حمص بالطحينة‎‎) is a Levantine dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas or other beans, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. It is popular in the Middle East and in Middle Eastern cuisine around the globe. It can also be found in most grocery stores in North America and Europe.

Hummus is totally optional. Chickpeas are already in falafel; I don’t need pureed chickpeas on my fried chickpeas.

How do you even explain hummus and falafel? It’s like a chick pea spread, topped with raw chick peas, that you dip fried chick peas into.
