This recipe is one of the first that I devised. I remember that we needed something that would be good served hot or cold, and something that could be served with a salad or a soup as a light lunch. It’s also good for dinner served with a suitable vegetable stew. I know it has been a very popular recipe with lots of families.
Fate Spicy Bake freezes well. Defrost when needed, wrap loosely in foil and place in a warm oven to heat through.
1 tbsp oil
150g onion, finely chopped (you could use frozen diced onion if available)
150g Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix
75g block margarine
Pepper to season
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp curry powder
75g carrot, grated
6 – 8 slices fresh tomato for garnish
Preheat the oven Gas 6 200°C 400°F
Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onion. Cook for 5-10 mins until golden brown. Place into a small dish and cool. Place the Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix into a mixing bowl. Rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the salt and pepper to season. Add the baking powder and curry powder. Stir in the grated carrot.
Add the water and mix with a large metal spoon until blended well.
Place the mixture into a greased shallow round cake tin about 15cm (6 inches) in diameter. Use a large spoon to spread the mixture to the edges. There is no need to make the top smooth, it looks good if it has a rough surface. Mark the surface into 6 portions.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 mins, but about 10 mins before the end of the cooking time, place a slice of tomato onto each portion. Continue to cook until golden brown and serve.
