This one comes directly from the Meal Club.
Near every meal Ma Dolla is making for the Meal Club is our ‘proudest moment’. She is doing what she loves, experimenting with new recipes, doing something special everyday. We’ve made tandoori, ramen, and pizza again this week. But today we are looking at something novel and exciting…
You will need.
- Green Pepper, sliced into chunks
- Yellow Pepper, sliced into chunks
- Red Pepper, sliced into chunks
- Cabbage, thinly sliced
- Zucchini, grated
- Apple, thinly sliced, patted dry
- Mixed Nuts and Seeds, fried
To start, chop and slice. *Note, it is very important to dry the apple slices, keep them whole as much as you can, for the aesthetics.
Lightly fry the nuts and seeds together, adding some salt, do not discolor and set aside. We added fruit cubes, for a touch of sweetness.
For the zucchini fritters
- Zucchini, as much as you will need
- Dollas Celery Salt
- A teaspoon white pepper
- A cup of flour
- 2 tablespoons chana dahl ( chickpea flour )
- Enough Beer to make a stiff batter
Mix all the ingredients together, then scoop tablespoons into low oil. Turn over until they are golden, cooked through.
*Pa Dolla had been saving a six pack of Black Label, but any non-alcoholic beer will work.
For the Apple Fritters…
This is where we all got excited.
Make a beer batter, we used our favorite recipe which we last used for the ‘fish n chips’.
- 2 tablespoons chana dahl – chickpea flour
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 cup beer
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- 2 pinches of salt
Mix carefully. Submerge the dry apple slices in the batter, covering all sides, then place in low oil, hot. Flip over until perfectly golden.
Set on paper towels to dry off excess oil.
- Coconut Milk
- 1 tablespoon Peanut Butter
- 1/2 cup granadilla pulp, fresh
- 1 tablespoon golden syrup
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice, infused with garlic
Mix together in a blender, serve on the side.
Now bring all of it together. We prepared this for the Meal Club, so we served it in lunch boxes. Altogether, this is delicious…
