Carrot and Leek Bhaji Recipe

It is interesting how Indian culture and especially cuisine has begun to enter America, witness the interest in Ayurvedic spices. It has long been popular in Great Britain where the historical connections between the two countries is much closer. As Americans become more exposed to Indian food, they find that they like it. Bhajis are only one small part of a wave sweeping the States.

1/2 cup flour
Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 large sliced and cleaned leeks
1 large grated carrot
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a bowl, mix the flour with enough water to make a thin batter. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a cast iron skillet. Add the cumin, coriander, cilantro, and turmeric to mix. Now add the baking power and once mixed in toss in the grated carrot and the leeks. Using your hands shape small patties or balls from the mixture. When the frying pan is hot (hold your hand about eight inches above the pan, if you feel heat rising it is hot enough, alternatively flick a bit of water on the pan, if it sizzles, the pan is ready) gently place the patties on hot oil. Add salt and pepper to taste and fry until they become brown and crispy. Turn the patties as necessary. Serve hot.
