Turnip Homefries

Turnip Homefries
1 lb of turnips, washed, peeled and grated in a food processor or on a mandoline.
1 tsp of black onion (nigella aka kalonji ) seed.
1/2 tsp of brown mustard seed
1 tsp of  ground coriander
1/4 tsp of garam masala
1 tsp of salt or to taste
1/2 tsp of kashmiri chili ( or 1/4 tsp cayenne mixed with 1/4 tsp of paprika)
3 Tbs of vegetable oil
2 Tbs of flour ( I made these with sorghum flour so they are also Gluten Free)
1 egg
1 tsp of turmeric
1 onion peeled and grated
1 shallot peeled and grated
Squeeze the turnips after you grate them to get excess water out of them, they should be as dry as possible.
In a large bowl mix together the grated dry turnip, flour, onion shallot chili powder, salt pepper to taste and egg. Set it aside.
In a heavy skillet heat the vegetable oil.
When the oil is hot toss, in the black onion seed and the mustard seeds
When the seeds start to pop, add in the coriander and turmeric,
Cook the spices together for about 2  minutes
Add in the grated turnip mixture.
Stir it around in the hot oil mixing it well with the spices and cook it until it starts to get crispy and lightly brown, just as you would cook hash browns. This takes about 8 to 10 minutes depending on how hot the pan is,
When they look about done, stir in 1/4 tsp of garam masala and serve.
