Instructions

  1. Make the dumplings: In a large bowl, whisk the chickpea flour with the semolina, salt, sugar, turmeric, sesame seeds, baking soda, and garam masala. Add the fenugreek, oil, garlic, chile, and 7 tablespoons water, stir until a dough forms, and knead the dough in the bowl until smooth. Pinch off about 20 pingpong-ball-size pieces of dough, shape each into a 1-inch-long oval, transfer to a parchment paper—lined baking sheet, and refrigerate.
  2. Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a 6-qt. Dutch oven, attach a deep-fry thermometer, and heat to 350°. Working in batches, fry the dumplings until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the dumplings to paper towels to drain.
  3. Make the vegetables: In a large saucepan, warm the oil over medium heat. Add the turmeric, ajwain seeds, and asafetida and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in both potatoes, cover the pan, and cook until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Add the cilantro, fava beans, edamame, peas, 1?2 cup coconut, the garam masala, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, sugar, chiles, and 2 cups water, season with salt, and cook, stirring, until all the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir the dumplings into the pan and cook until warmed through, 6 to 8 minutes more. Remove the pan from the heat, sprinkle the stew with the remaining 2 tablespoons coconut, and serve with lime wedges.
