DALTJIES

[slideshow]   Daltjies   Ingredients: 250ml pea/chana flour 30ml cake flour 1 small onion, grated 1 small potato, grated 1 teaspoon jeera 1 teaspoon koljander (coriander) ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon turmeric 1 level teaspoon baking powder 2 teaspoons crushed dried red chillies 1 cup chopped spinach 100ml water to mix Oil for deep frying   Method:   Add the flours, jeera, koljander, salt, turmeric, baking powder and dried chillies into a mixing bowl. Add the grated onion, potato, chopped spinach and enough water to make a stiff mixture. Heat the oil until moderately hot. Do not over heat the oil as the daltjie will brown too quickly and the inside will not have cooked completely. Drop spoonfuls into the hot oil, fry for approximately 3 minutes turning all the time. Drain on absorbent kitchen towels, serve warm with chutney.
