Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 heaped bowl fenugreek leaves, washed and drained
  • 6 tablespoons gram flour (besan)
  • 1 teaspoon rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon oil, for the batter
  • 1/4 teaspoon or less coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon or less turmeric powder
  • 2 pinches cooking soda
  • 1/6 teaspoon carom seeds
  • 1 onion, julienned
  • salt, to taste
  • oil, for deep-frying

Instructions

  1. Wash fenugreek leaves 2–3 times. Pat-dry them.
  2. Place the leaves in a wide mixing bowl. Add gram flour, rice flour, turmeric powder, carom seeds, coriander powder, cooking soda, oil, chopped onions, red chili powder, and salt. Mix. Add a few drops of water and prepare a firm and thin consistency batter. Refer the photo to ensure the right consistency.
  3. Heat oil for deep-frying. Take small portions of the batter, press them a little, and gently slide them one after the other into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd them. Turn them occasionally to ensure uniform frying.
  4. Fry them until they become golden brown and crunchy. Each batch may take about 4 minutes. Remove them with a slotted ladle and place them on an absorbent paper towel to blot the excess oil.
  5. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining batter.
  6. Now, crispy and delicious fenugreek fritters are ready to munch. Serve them with a cup of hot coffee or tea. Enjoy!
