- ham hock
- 2 cups chickpea flour
- 2-3 cups semi skimmed milk
- ¼ cup baking powder
- 1 lime, juiced and zested
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1 shallot, finely diced
- 1 ½ cups flat-leaf parsley, chopped
- 1tsp garam masala
- 1tsp onion seeds
- 1tsp curry powder
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup (preferably golden colour for its delicate flavour)
- 2-3 cups vegetable oil
- 1 large potato, peeled and diced
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- Chicken or vegetable stock
- 2 egg yolks
- To make the garlic dip, add the peeled and diced potato and garlic to a small saucepan and pour in enough chicken or vegetable stock to just cover them. Bring to a gentle boil and cook until the potatoes are tender
- Remove from the heat and once cooled add the mixture to a blender. Add the egg yolks and blitz on a low-medium speed
- Slowly, add the oil in a thin, steady stream to thicken and emulsify the mixture – it should resemble mayonnaise
- Add in the maple syrup and season to taste. If the mixture becomes too thick, add a dash of hot water
