1 onion
2 oz button mushrooms
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp hot chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1 vegetable oil for deep frying
1 fresh parsley sprig (opt)


Peel, quarter and thinly slice onion.

Coarsely chop mushrooms. In a bowl, combine flours, turmeric, chili powder, cumin, coriander and salt. Stir in onion, mushrooms and yogurt; mix well.

Half fill a deep-fat fryer or saucepan with oil; heat to 375'F (190'C.) or until a 1/2" cube of day-old bread browns in 40 seconds. Divide mixture in 10 equal portions. Drop spoonfuls of mixture into
hot oil and fry 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Drain on paper towels. Garnish with parsley sprig, if desired, and serve warm.
