Ingredients
 

  • 1 medium onion, peeled, halved and sliced very thinly
  • 225 g chickpea flour
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric, heaped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, freshly milled
  • 1 tsp ground cumin, level
  • 4 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • sparkling water to mix
  • vegetable oil, to cook in

For the Sauce

  • 225 ml low-fat natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
  • 0.5 medium ripe mango, peeled and de stoned (half a 410g tin of sliced mangoes well drained, I think are far better than fresh for this sauce)

Instructions
 

  • Pre heat the vegetable oil to 175C
  • Place the mango and yoghurt into a liquidiser and blitz until smooth.
  • Spoon into a bowl and stir in the chopped mint, cover and leave to marinate for about 1 hour out of the fridge.
  • Place the finely sliced onion, spices, salt and pepper, and chopped coriander into a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add enough sparkling water to mix the onion mixture to a wet, soft mixture. The mixture must not be runny.
  • Pull off lumps the size of a small walnut; it's quite nice to see the onion poking out of the batter.
  • Drop no more than 4-5 lumps into the hot oil. They will colour very quickly due to the turmeric.
  • Once they have cooked for 3 minutes, flip over and cook the other side until nice and evenly browned.
  • Drain well on kitchen paper and keep warm.
  • Let the oil come back to the right temperature and repeat the process with another 5 lumps.
  • To serve, place on warm plates and drizzle over a little dressing and serve with a little green salad.
