  • Oil to deep-fry

  • 175 g (6 oz) whole meal flour

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 170C/330F.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add the chili powder and chopped chili and onions.

  3. Add more onion if necessary; there should be more onion than spiced flour.

  4. Gradually add sufficient water to obtain a soft, thick paste.
