Agreed – this unique Indian recipe does take some time to prepare. But the time taken to make the yoghurt isn't strenuous – just leave it to hang overnight while you're asleep. It's as simple as that. The ingredients can also be mixed in a high-speed blender or spice/coffee bean grinder, but I like chopping and getting my hands dirty!

These babies go perfectly with some mint, date or tamarind chutney and a little Tabasco. Garnish with fresh coriander, mint and a squeeze of lime juice to make them even more mouth-watering. They're best eaten piping hot.

Ingredients:

  • 1L plain yoghurt
  • ½ cup onion, chopped finely
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander, chopped finely
  • ¼ cup fresh mint, chopped finely
  • 2 green chillies, deseeded and chopped finely
  • ½ cup cashews, toasted and chopped finely
  • ⅓ cup golden raisins, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • ½ cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • salt (to taste)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds


Method:

  1. In a clean tea towel or muslin cloth, hang the yoghurt overnight at room temperature or, if you live in a very hot place, in the fridge.
  2. The next day, squeeze out the excess water and remove the yoghurt from the towel. Place in a bowl with all the other ingredients, with only 1 tbsp of the chickpea flour.
  3. Make small patties out of the mixture. I made them into round shapes, but get creative! Chill these patties in the freezer for 10 mins, or until firm.
  4. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan, place the remaining chickpea flour on a plate and get ready to start frying. Keep some kitchen towels handy to drain the excess oil after the patties are fried.
  5. Dust the chilled patties with chickpea flour and fry till golden brown. Alternate with the sesame seeds as well.
  6. Serve with mint, date or tamarind chutney.
  7. EAT HOT!
