Vegetable Pakoras

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who know about pakoras, and those that don't. Which are you?

Ingredients

  • 150 grams gram flour
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon carom seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 or 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 onion
  • Some coriander
  • Some spinach
  • Cashew nuts
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 lemon to serve

Steps

  1. Combine all batter ingredients and mix well. Then add the vegetable mix and leave for 10-15 minutes to let
  2. The moisture soak into the flour. You need a batter-like consistency so if that doesn't happen, very slowly add more water.
  3. Heat oil for frying (sunflower/vegetable) - at least one inch, but you can do more if you want.
  4. Drop tablespoon sized balls into the pan and fry until golden. Don't overfill the pan.
  5. Dry off on kitchen towel and serve with lemon
  6. Wedges.
