•  1 aubergine thinly sliced
  • 1 large potato thinly sliced
  • 3 onions finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • ½ tbsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 x chopped fresh chilli or chilli powder to taste (optional)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 teacup gram (besan) flour
  • ½ tsp salt or to taste
  • Chopped fresh coriander to serve


1.       Mix all the vegetables together with the spices in a large bowl, add the egg and the besan flour, if too dry add a couple of spoons of water to form a soft dough

2.       Heat enough oil in a pan for shallow frying.  When oil is hot, make a ball with the mixture and flatten in the palm of your hands (as you would a fishcake).  Fry on both sides for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

3.       Garnish with salad and enjoy!
