Aloo ki tikki

This is an a GAPS rendition of the Indian dish called Aloo ki tikki. Usually made with potato I have modified the recipe to be made with pumpkin and carrot as well as swapping the besan flour for sunflower seeds.

These little vegetarian patties are to die for. Such a treat for me and a great break from the monotony of meat.

300g carrot
200g pumpkin
1 T fat
2 green chillies finely chopped
1/2 large onion finely chopped
2 cm piece of ginger, grated
1 t turmeric
1 t cumin
1 t coriander
1/2 t garam masala
2 T sunflower seeds pre-soaked and dehydrated, then milled in coffee grinder.
1 T lemon juice
Fat for frying

Steam or boil carrot and pumpkin
Drain and mash
Saute Onion, chilli and ginger in 1 T fat for 2 mins
Add spices and saute until fragrant
Mix in with the mashed vegetables and add lemon juice and salt to taste.
Stir in the sunflower seed flour, adding more if a firmer patty is preferred
Make little patties and fry in 2mm of fat.

These didnt hold together very well, so I intend to add an egg next time to improve this. Despite this the rissoles where absolutely delicious and there were no left overs for lunch the next day, much to my disappointment.
