Put the gram flour, plain flour, spices and salt into a large bowl, and slowly whisk in the lager, until a batter forms. Stir in the spring onions and shallots.
For the chutney, put all of the ingredients in a blender with 2-3 tbsp of cold water and whizz until really smooth.
Fill a pan no more than 1/3 full with oil and heat until 180C or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds. Take a heaped tbsp of the spring onion batter and carefully drop into the oil. Fry for 3-4 minutes, in batches, or until crisp and brown. Drain on kitchen paper, season with sea salt and keep warm in a low oven while you fry the rest. Serve with the chutney for dipping.
