Curried vegetable gramcake

OK that’s probably a really bad name for this creation but I thought of it like a gram flour pancake.

I felt quite inspired to make onion bhajis the other day and followed a recipe on the side of my gram flour bag to make some. Then I ate them like I used to at university- as a burger in a bun with mango chutney. YUM


Inspired by the same recipe, I made my gram-cake which I guess is kind of a bit like a vegan omlette.


1 small onion, finely sliced

1 cup chopped cabbage

1 carrot, finely sliced

vegetable oil

1 cup gram flour

1 cup water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds

1/4 teaspoon dried chilli

Start by gently frying the sliced onion, cabbage and carrot (or in fact any vegetables you fancy!) in a flat bottomed frying pan.


while the vegetables are cooking, put the cumin seeds, corriander seeds, salt and chilli into a pestle and mortar and grind. Mix together with the gram flour and water and mix in the lightly fried vegetables.

Add some more oil to the pan and pour in the mixture. Spread out with the back of a spoon.


Once the top of the gram cake is no longer wet, fold in half using a spatula and cook for a few more minutes, flipping if necessary to cook on both sides.


I served mine with baked beans and brown sauce.
