Pakoras Recipe

(Savory Indian Vegetable Fritters)

An Indian choice to serve as a savory when it comes to tea time.

Ingredients :

1.5 cups chick pea flour

1 teaspoon garam masala

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon turmeric, ground

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 clove garlic, crushed

4 cups mixed chopped vegetables

Oil for deep frying

 

Method :

Sieve the chick pea flour. Use a bowl to mix the sieved chick pea flour, salt, turmeric, garam masala, and chili powder. Add water to mix until it becomes a thick dough. Stir in the garlic and beat well. Set aside to allow the batter to stand for 30 minutes before beating again. Add the mixed chopped vegetables to the batter and mix thoroughly.

 

Heat up a deep pan of oil. Carefully drop teaspoons of the mixture into the oil and fry until pale golden on moderate heat. Fry on both sides. Use a slotted spoon to remove to an absorbent paper to drain. Before serving, heat oil again and when almost smoking hot, re-fry the pakoras a few at a time. Fry for only 30 seconds or until golden brown. This second frying will make the pakoras crisp. Drain on absorbent paper and serve immediately while hot.
