Ingredients

Cilantro and Coconut Chutney:

Directions

Put the coriander, cumin and cardamom seeds into a mortar and pestle and coarsely grind them. Add to a medium bowl along with the chickpeas and mash with a fork. Add the refried beans, chickpea flour, garam masala, salt and pepper, chili and onions and mix well. Form the bean mixture into small patties. Heat the oil in a large skillet, and then begin adding the bean pakoras, frying them until they are golden and crispy on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on a rack. Serve with Cilantro and Coconut Chutney.

Cilantro and Coconut Chutney:

Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and toast the coriander, cumin, fennel and cardamom seeds until very aromatic, about 1 minute. Put into a blender along with the cilantro, coconut milk, fresh coconut, ginger, sugar, salt, chili, garlic, and lime juice, and pulse until smooth and well blended.
