  • 2 carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 green chilli
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Fennelseeds1 tsp fennel seeds (see picture)
  • 2 tsp ground cilantro
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp bakingpowder
  • 250 ml / 9 oz / 125 g / 4 oz buckwheat flour
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp canola oil

Cooking instructionsHow to

  1. Peel and grate 2 carrots and 1 small onion finely.
  2. Clean and chop 2 green chilli. The strength is in the seeds and the white membranes, so if you want a milder flavour, clean off the white.
  3. Mix carrots, onion and chilli with 1 tbsp ground cumin, 1 tsp fennel seeds, 2 tsp ground cilantro, 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, 1 tsp bakingpowder, 250 ml / 9 oz / 4 oz buckwheat flour and 1.5 tsp salt and 100 ml / 3 1/2 oz water in a bowl.
  4. Shape into patties and fry in 2 tbsp canola oil on a medium heat for a few minutes on each side, turning the patties from pink to golden brown.
  5. As you stand there frying you can do a “being in the now” exercise: Think about three things you see right now. Listen to three things you hear right now. Feel three things you are feeling right now. Turn the patties over.
