Falafel Help

I want to make homemade falafel, but I'm really nervous about it. Does anyone have any tips? I've found a recipe that's simple enough, but I always get antsy trying to make an unfamiliar ethnic food from scratch for the first time.

Also, once they're fried up, should I put them in pita or a flour tortilla? Tzatziki sauce, hummus or both? What fix-ins?

Thanks!
