Usually one eats falafel with a pita, so he washes on the bread and then is Motzi them with the bread.

However what should one do if he wants to eat plain falafel balls?

Falafel balls are made out of chickpeas that are ground up. Usually when the shape of a fruit or vegetable is changed from it's original form, one makes a Shehakol on the item.

Also frying an item makes is considered even more of a change.

What about the fact that there is dough in falafel balls? Usually even if the main ingredient is not Mezonot, if there is something Mezonot in a product then we make a Mezonot.
