These delectable Indian fritters are a true delight for the taste buds. Thinly sliced onions, generously spiced and enveloped in a chickpea flour batter, are fried to perfection until golden and crispy. Pairing them with cucumber raita, a refreshing dip…
Braised Silverbeet on a bed of polenta, topped with toasted pine nuts… it’s a comforting side dish that’ll pair beautifully with larger meals.
- Heat oil in a large frypan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 mins or until softened. Then add the garlic and cook for 1 min or until fragrant.
- Next, add the silverbeet and ½ cup of chicken stock. Cook for 5 mins, or until the silverbeet has wilted.
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining chicken stock, milk and water in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Bring contents to a simmer, then gradually add in the polenta in a slow, steady stream, stirring constantly until well combined. Cook, stirring, for 8 mins or until the polenta is smooth and thick. Once ready, remove from heat and stir in the grated parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Transfer the polenta to a serving dish, then top with the silverbeet mixture. Sprinkle over the pine nuts and grate over some extra parmesan. Enjoy!
