Wash all vegetables and cut into fine julienne strips. Also slice the Ganda ham into fine strips and mix with the vegetables. Season the mixture with curcuma, salt and pepper.
Peal the cloves of garlic and crush them, mix with the cumin-seed, add the whole to the vegetables and stir together.
Prepare a smooth batter with 100g of flour, 100g of gram flour and some water.
Mix all ingredients into the batter.
Sprinkle some extra flour and gram flour onto the batter mixture until obtaining a firm, sticky result. Now form little balls from the mixture using 2 tablespoons and fry them in hot oil until they are golden-brown.
Drain on kitchen paper to remove excess fat.
Make the dip by diluting the mayonnaise with the Tripel Karmeliet and add the capers for the briny note and the preserved shallots.
