Ingredients 10
Time 00:25
  • 750
    oil (for deep frying)
  • 125
    chick pea flour
  • 75
    soya flour
  • 50
    rice flour
  • 25
    self raising flour
  • 5
    roasted and crushed fennel seeds
  • 5
    roasted and crushed coriander seeds
  • 5
  • 1-2
    finely chopped chillies (optional)
  • 50
    finely chopped spring onions


Place the oil in a wok or deep frying pan on the stove to heat up (medium heat).

Sift the various flours into a large mixing bowl-ensuring that they are well combined.

Add the seed spices, salt, chilli, onion and spring onions.

Using the water (add more if necessary) make a batter of dropping consistency.

Once the oil is ready, drop about ½ teaspoon batter into the oil and if it comes up quickly your oil is ready.

Take about 2 tablespoons of the hot oil and pour over your batter and mix thoroughly.

Now you can drop spoons full of batter into the hot oil and allow to cook for a few minutes till golden brown-remove with a slotted spoon.

Serve with a tomato and chilli sauce or use as above in the chickpea curry.
