Thanks Kimmy, sorry should have read the recipe better as I can see that this has been mentioned already ;)
Will give it a try and let you know, planning to halve and bake in a lamington tray..

Non Thermomix Recipes / Sago Patties (deep fried)
« on: March 12, 2015, 12:04:27 am »
This is one of my favorite snack which my mom always used to prepare..
Posting a recipe for the first time, so plz bear with me ;)

2 cups very small white sago
1 large boiled potato mashed
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
1 inch ginger
2 green chilli
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
Oil to fry
3-4 curry leaves finely chopped
3-4 sprigs of corainder finely chopped

Place sago in a bowl and fill water just enough to submerge it (dont put excess water else it will get too sticky), close with a lid and keep aside for 30-45mins. In the meanwhile grind the ginger and green chilli to a fine paste. In a blender/TM coarsely grind the peanuts, make sure there are few chunky bits, this makes it more tasty..

After the sago absorbs all the water, in a bowl mix well sago, mashed potato, peanuts, ginger, chilly, curry leaves, coriander, cumin seeds and salt. The mixture should be a nice thick one with which you can form patties.

In a pan of oil, deep fry these patties just until they are golden brown, takes around 4-5 mins..
They should be crispy on the outside but a little gooey on the inside..

Serve as it is or with tomato ketchup and enjoy!!!

p.s. Sorry no photo to upload as I couldnt take one immediately and by the time I wanted to, all was gone  ;D
      Will surely try to add a photo next time I make these

NOTES: Please make sure there is enough potato in the mixture as they tend to pop when fried.. so please be careful..
           You can have some variations adding chopped onion, I personally dont prefer onion in these..

Tried this yesterday with a little tweaks.

Firstly halved the recipe as I didnt have as many bananas..
And then replaced sugar with dates so that I could give to my toddler
Replaced butter with canola oil as I didnt have butter
And replaced eggs with extra banana and water ;)

Okay, probably not little but many tweaks, but at the end, it came out lovely, very spongy and my lo loved it as a dessert, so will be making it again :) Thanks astarra!!

Looks really nice Asatarra :) I have got quite a few ripe bananas, will you be able to share the recipe for this?

Made this cake over the weekend for my in-law's anniversary and they loved it :)
Hubby was surprised that it was an eggless cake...

But just a small query, it was a tad little dry, not sure what I can do to make it a little more moist, any suggestions for next time?

Thanks CC, Judy, Bedlam and Kim :) Feels good but at the same time, disappointed that I was in a little hurry else probably would have done it better... But no giving up, will repeat soon, this time will make cupcakes :)

Thanks so much Jamberie, in fact I had success with the second batch :) I read all the comments properly and realised the mistake was with roux not completely cool....

Decorated my choc vegan cake, felt realll happy as it was my first attempt at icing, never actually dared before having  a TM :)

Really grateful to this wonderful forum, just hope everyone likes the cake tomm, fingers crossed....

Not sure where i have gone wrong :( but i am making this icing to cover a cake and it has curdled/liquidy in the last step. After aereating  butter and sugar, it had a lovely soft texture but when I added the milk and flour mixture, it just turned into liquid... I am feeling so shattered..

Planning to make a new batch, can someone please help me..

I am making the strawberry version and doubled the recipe..
- after we put the butterfly, do we leave it in until the end also do we hv to put back the MC or keep it open to aereate..
- do we even double the time in the last step, beat for 3 mins or 6 mins?

Even though I am a relatively new TM user, I would agree with every word of yours.
The best part is this forum, I seriously have never seen so many friendly people at one place, every question of yours is answered with the same interest and passion  :)

For now, I have only tried few recipes due to the limit with a toddler but very sure there are many to come..

Thanks Judy :) Hope I get it right.. never been able to make a perfect cake/icing...
Fingers crossed this time..
