Urgent! A question about a recipe: World's Easiest Falafel and Tzatziki

I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "World's Easiest Falafel and Tzatziki" from marisab67. It says:

"Form into patties and let rest while tzatziki is made."

Is the resting of the patties important? I'm using tzatziki from the Turkish grocer. Can I just fry these straight out of the food processor??

The rest lets the ground chickpeas hydrate, lets moisture distribute and the patties firm up so they keep their shape. Also lets the spices 'bloom' so it's tasty!

You can fry them right away, but they might not hold together as well as if they get to sit for about 10 minutes,
