      1/4   ts           Black pepper
      1/2   ts           Turmeric
    1       t            Garam masala
      3/4   c            Soy milk
    2       tb           Cornstarch
    2       tb           Whole wheat flour
      2/3   c            White poppy seeds
                         Ghee for shallow frying
   Place the cauliflower, potatoes, fresh peas & green beans in the bottom of
   a pot & cover with water.  Put the carrots, beets & celery in a steaming
   basket, cover & place over the pot.  Cook until the vegetables are
   tender-crisp.  Drian, saving the water.  Add the frozen peas, defrosted
   first, to the steamed vegetables.
   In a blender, while it is running, drop in the chilies.  Add the chick
   peas, nuts & seeds & process until the peas are mashed.  Some vegetable
   water may facilitate this.  Add the cauliflower, potatoes, fresh peas, if
   using, & beans.  Pulse on & off till they are coarsely mashed.  Transfer to
   a mixing bowl, add the steamed vegetables, salt, pepper, turmeric & garam
   masala.  Mix well.  Divide into portions.
   Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.  Flatten a portion into an almond
   shaped cutlet, 1/2 inch thick & place on the sheet.  Cover & refrigerate
   for 30 minutes.
   Whisk the soy milk, cornstarch & flour in a flat bowl until smooth.  Dip
   each cutlet into the batter, roll in poppy seeds & set aside briefly to air
   Heat ghee to a depth of 3/4 inch.  Without crowding, fry the cutlets in
   batches for 2 minutes each side.  Drain & serve.
