Mixed Vegetable Pakora

An easy to make starter prepared with vegetables of your choice. Who doesn't like a freshly fried fritter?


Vegetables of your choice - carrots, french beans, cabbage, onion, brinjal, potato etc.
Gram flour/kadalai maavu - 1/2 cup

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - few, finely chopped
Hing and salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying

  1. Wash the vegetables and cut them into thin slices, preferably lengthwise.
  2. In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except oil, one by one. Add little water to make a thick batter. The batter should be well coated over the vegetables but still not runny.
  3. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Test if it is hot enough for making the pakoras by dropping a small ball of batter, if it sizzles and comes up immediately then start proceeding
  4. Take a spoonful of batter coated vegetables and carefully drop the hot oil and fry till golden brown in medium heat. Do not drop big dollops, then the vegetables will not be evenly cooked. Take them out once they turn golden brown and drain in a paper towel.
  5. Enjoy hot pakoras with ketchup or cilantro chutney or tamarind chutney.
