To make falafel: in a food processor combine chickpeas, shallots, parsley, sesame seeds, cilantro leaves, spices and flour. Pulse until texture of coarse sand. Remove from bowl and form into small tablespoon sized balls. Then refrigerate. Note: this will help balls stay together while frying.
To make yogurt sauce: clean out food processor and add yogurt, avocado, cilantro, lime juice and garlic. Blend until smooth. Remove to a small bowl and set aside.
Heat oil in a shallow pan on medium-high. Add falafel to hot oil. Cook 3 to 4 minutes then flip and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
Serve falafel in a warmed whole wheat tortilla with a generous amount of cilantro yogurt.
