OK we've wandered off the path of tradition a little. But these are really really good!
2 Onion roughly chopped
1 Beetroot, pealed and cut into fine straws
100g Gram flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp ground Cloves
½ tsp Turmeric
Oil to fry
(1) Mix all the ingredients into a batter in a bowl.
(2) Heat a deep fat fryer to 180c.
(3) Fly until golden brown.
They cost next to nothing and a really filling. Great with a curry, but equally good with a casserole.
