Keyword indian, vegan, whole foods plant based


  • 1 C thinly sliced onion
  • 1 C grated zucchini
  • 1 C grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup Besan, Chickpea flour
  • 1 teaspoon Carom seeds (Ajwain)
  • ⅛ tsp Turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt, to taste


Mix all until uniformly combined. Let sit for 5 mins. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time as needed until combined yet a bit crumbly.

Take about 1/8 C portions and pat into thickish cutlet shaped patties. Dont pack them too tight. Leave it porous to make them crispy.

Bake or airfry at 400F on a silicone mat (Silpat) for 15 mins then steps of 5 mins until golden brown. Broil for 1 min or 2 mins if required. Flip patties and repeat the baking. Baking time varies from oven to oven.

Crispy and excellent!  Makes a great snack or party food.

Serve with spicy coriander chutney!


Note: The key to making it crispy is to not use too much water. Use water in a spray bottle just enough so that no more dry flour remains.
