Carrot Pakora-style Patties

Monday December 02, 2013

CarrotPattiesThese versatile patties are are easy, use common ingredients, and are adaptable to whatever you have at home. And of course are very nutritious!

The recipe is altered a little from www.beyondthepeel.net. Dip them in guacamole, or as the recipe suggests, make a mint & coriander yoghurt, and perhaps serve with pita. The kids will love them!

Ingredients:
2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cup coriander or parsley
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup quinoa flour (recipe suggested pea/chickpea flour)
1/2 tsp masala spice (or curry powder)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp salt
2 eggs beaten
1/2 cup water

Method:
Mix carrots, coriander, seeds & oats in a large bowl. Then mix in flour and spices. Then in goes the egg. Mix again. And finally pour in half the water. It should resemble a thick batter. If you think it”s too dry, add the remaining water, otherwise, you”re ready to cook!

Put some coconut oil in the bottom of a frying pan on low heat. Scoop 1/4 cup of the mixture in the pan, and flatten with a fork to form a circular shape. They won”t form balls, but be more like a pancake mixture. Cook for approximately 5 minutes each side.

Serve with either a salad, guacamole, or a yoghurt-based dip. And as the recipe suggested, a pita bread.
