For the Pakora

  • Place both flours in a bowl with spices, salt, and baking powder.  Add zucchini and carrots to the batter.  With a whisk add in the water until a smooth batter is formed.  In a small sauce pot heat oil for frying to 325 degrees.  
    With a small spoon or mini ice cream scoop place batter into the frying oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes flipping the pakora half way through.  Strain out the pakora onto a paper towel and season immediately with salt.  Continue in batches to keep the pakoras warm until your out of batter.

For the Curry Mayo

  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir with a whisk until well combined.  Adjust seasoning if need be.  Place in a squirt bottle

Curry oil

  • Place all the ingredients into a small pot except for the salt. Bring to a light simmer and then turn the heat off. Add the salt and allow to cool to room temperature. Set aside until ready to use.

To Finish

  • Take your tuna slices and drizzle with curry/turmeric oil.  Squeeze lime juice over the top of the tuna.  Then season lightly with salt.  Then take pakoras a dozen or so at a time and place one slice of tuna on top of each pakora.  
    Then add a dollop of curry mayo.  Add finger-lime "caviar" , a sliver of young coconut, and finish with a chive "stick".  Serve and enjoy this hot and cold appetizer!
