Preheat oven to 400°F. Place beans and water in large bowl; mash with potato masher until smooth. Add parsley, flour, garlic, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; mix until blended. Shape mixture into 12 patties, about 1/2-inch thick. Place on shallow baking pan.
Gently brush both sides of each patty with oil. Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown on each side, turning once halfway.
Meanwhile, combine drained tomatoes, yogurt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper in food processor; pulse until smooth. Serve sauce with falafel.
Falafel patties and sauce may be served in pita breads with cucumber and red onion slices, if desired.
