For those time when the Vegetarians and Vegans want to get away from the more carnivorous types.

They look delicious, scully! I confess I have always avoided deep frying, have never ever done it,not even once!

i think you could just about get away with shallow-ish frying them if you kept turning them. they stay together very well.

I made a red Thai curry with mushrooms, green beans and cashews last night. It was very very tasty :)

Paratha sounds great. What is a constructed Paneer curry

I used a kit, Mamta. Spice Tailors.

I am not sure the bread really worked. They were 'fried' in very little oil. As with pancakes, I think the later ones (after most of the oil had been absorbed by earlier ones) were better. They might improve with reheating.

I did find the recipe on line, but can't find now to post the link. Essentially they were made from wholemeal flour, water, olive oil and herbs and spices.

They sound like methi fenugreek leave paratha 1, or Methi leave paratha 2, both ways they are quite easy to make for an experienced cook like you , if you have the ingredients. Kits don't always work, though some are good .

The kit was just for the curry, Mamta. The breads were from scratch. In fact the entire point was to make the bread. The curry was just to go with it :) I didn't have the time or energy after work to make both from scratch.

Sounds pretty good to me, except it doesn't describe how to pan fry them.

That's just an excerpt from the book - you have to have the actual book to have the whole recipe.. and I do :)

made this tonight.
well, i didn't make it exactly. when i went to the cupboard i realised i'd used the tin of black beans in a chilli a while back so i used red kidney beans. i also used a shallot rather than dried onion and fried it with the pepper before adding to the amaranth. more herbs and spices than the recipe calls for and then some more fresh thyme when i tasted the mix, before cooking along with some more of the flavouring stuff. i fried them (they didn't stick to the pan as suggested they do) rather than baked them.
they were good especially with the coconut/pepper/chilli sauce (which was really tasty) - a good sauce for other occasions, too, i think.
they could also take adding more amaranth as it seemed to disappear in the mix. i was expecting it to be a more prominent texture.

The pepper sauce looks nice. I am following a mostly plant based diet for a few weeks and am finding that smoked paprika and hot sauces seem to feature in vegan recipes rather more than I care for (I.e. don't want them in every meal!). I think there's a new trend.
