Vegetable Pakoras

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Vegetable Pakoras. Pakoras are a classic street food snack from India and Pakistan. They are vegetarian as well, and are usually made along side Samosas, during the month of Ramadan.
I have made a delicious Pakora recipe before which was My Spicy Fish Pakoras. This is a similar recipe but uses vegetables instead.
The photos in this recipe are for a huge batch of pakoras but the recipe I have written will be enough to feed about 4-6 people, depending on how hungry they are.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Green Chillies
2. Onions
3. Potatoes
4. Fresh Coriander
5. Ground Coriander
6. Salt
7. Cumin Seeds
8. Red Chilli Powder
9. Gram Flour
10. Bicarbonate of Soda
11. Water
12. Vegetable Oil

Bismillah, let's begin!

Finely slice three green chillies, and place into a large mixing bowl.

Peel two onions and two potatoes, thinly slice them, and place into the mixing bowl.

Add a handful of chopped fresh coriander and two teaspoons salt.

Throw in four teaspoon ground coriander.

Throw in four teaspoon cumin seeds.

Add one teaspoon red chilli powder.

Next, take gram flour (besan).

Add 2 cups (16 ounces) of gram flour.

Add 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda.

Mix everything well.

Add water until it turns to a thick batter and holds its shape when you pick up a teaspoon full.

Like this!

Deep fry teaspoon fulls of the mixture in medium hot oil.

Fry the pakoras until golden brown. This will take about 6-7 minutes.

Place the cooked pakoras onto paper towels to drain the excess oil.

Serve immediately while they are hot and crispy, with Green Yoghurt Chutney and Red Chutney.
