Ingredients

  • 8 x 25cm flour or corn tortillas
  • 75ml sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1¼ tsp salt
  • 1¼ tsp sugar
  • 2 handfuls fresh coriander,finely chopped
  • 125g full-fat natural yogurt

For the masala

  • 4-6 green chillies, roughly chopped 
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, halved
  • 4cm fresh ginger, roughly chopped

Method

  1. For the masala, grind or whizz the chillies, garlic and ginger to a fine paste with a pinch of salt, using a pestle and mortar or a blender.
  2. Tear the tortillas into roughly 4cm squares. Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan on a medium heat for 2 minutes, then add the fenugreek and mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds start to pop, add the tortillas and fry for 2 minutes on each side. Add the masala paste, turmeric, salt and sugar, then stir, gently frying the tortillas for 3 minutes more on each side. Add a handful of coriander and stir in. 
  3. Add the yogurt and 200ml water to the pan and stir through gently. Take the pan off the heat and leave to stand for 2 minutes. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the remaining fresh coriander.
