Crispy Vegetable Fritters

These delicious bites are really popular in South Asia, especially in India. These are called bhajiyas or pakoras as well. Although this is basically street food, it is also a very popular dish made at home, especially at tea time.

These are simple enough to make but taste fabulous with a hot cup of tea or coffee (I’ll go for the tea, thank you!)

Now there are two ways to go about this, you can either thinly slice/chop all the vegetables or you can cut them into discs and fry each one individually. Either way, the recipe is the same.

PUNJABI PAKORAS

A
1 cup Gram flour
2 tbsp rice flour
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder (add more if you prefer)
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
Salt to taste

B
Finely chop:
1/2 onion
1 green chilli

C
Disc or finely cut
Potatoes. Onions, Eggplant, Cauliflower florets
You can add finely sliced cabbage and sweet corn if you are making mixed veggie style

Method

  1. Add water into A to form a thick batter and set aside
  2. Apply salt and chilli powder to the vegetables and allow to sit as well
  3. Heat oil for deep frying, and have it on medium heat
  4. Dip each piece of veggie into the batter to coat completely and put individually into the oil, a few at the time.
    If making mixed veggie style, put all the veggies into the batter and drop small amounts from the finger tips into the oil. Keep these to a finger food size, ensuring there is sufficient vegetables in each pakora.
  5. Drain on a paper towel and serve hot with red chutney… and a cup of tea 😄
